Now go directly to the creation of the calendar for 2018.

Calendar grid

If you need a calendar in horizontal format, then go to one of the previous lessons… You can also download the action for these purposes.

If you need the calendar grid in the vertical version, then let’s do it together…

So, create a new document of A4 format, or which one you like best.

Next, take the tool “Slice Select Tool” or “Cutting” to divide the document into multiple equal parts.

Select “Divide Slice” by pressing the right mouse button with the selected tool.

Choose a value of 7 vertically and the same horizontally. Put a check in the “Preview” button to see the result in advance.

Then just take the tool to create a text layer and write the desired values of days of the week.

Should be able to: (if you used the Alt key pressed).

And then so:

You can group layers together and name the layer group as “the days of the week”.

Duplicate the group of layers hold down the right mouse button, select “Duplicate Group”.

Right arrows move the group that you just created to look like this:

The Alt key will help to copy the rest of the group layers…

Then just change the numbers in order, starting with 01 and ending 31. Remove the visibility from the remaining unnecessary layers or remove them.

Now it is time to highlight in red the weekend. For these purposes we use the tool “Rectangle Tool”.

календарь на 2018 год

Using “Rectangular selection” we do the weekend and then change their color to red.

This can be done using the “Blending Options” or options overlay in the layers panel.

Now the main thing – the right mouse button, select “Create Clipping Mask” or “Create clipping mask”. This action we will remove the background and highlight the figures in red.

If you duplicate the layer with the clipping mask, you can highlight in red and the days of the week:

The results

Calendar grid for 1 month is ready! To make the whole calendar, you just need to use your imagination and remove the unneeded layers with numbers and create a copy of the document. More about this can be read here.
