Read along to understand each of the studio feature created specifically for the calendar –

Autofill

Earlier, while creating templates Admin or the designer was forced to place every picture into the Calendar pages. To address this lacking we introduced the Autofill feature in Designer Studio.

  • To use this feature all you have to do is create image placeholders i.e. add any layout to each of the calendar pages; customizable and cover pages.
  • Next, is to upload all the images to be used in the Calendar either via My Computer, or any social media site (Facebook, Pixabay, Depositphotos, Instagram, etc.).
  • Using the sorting feature provided at the left panel sort your picture in a sequential manner they should be added in the Calendar Template. Next, click the Autofill button.

  • This will automatically add all the images sequentially (as chosen by you) into the image placeholders.

Images

  • After auto-filling the images you can easily replace the mages, crop them, reset, apply mask and borders and apply filters to them. Also, you can use the image and set it as background.
  • Just, click on the set background button and the image will be stretched to create a background.
