Proofing, Printing, Binding & Exporting the Calendar
Once you've completed your calendar, it's time to proof it. As you've seen throughout the course, images on the screen can look quite different from their appearance on paper. Rather than printing your calendar on large, thick paper and then realizing that it doesn't look as good as you would like it to, proofing it in a smaller version will allow you to see how it looks without wasting excessive amounts of ink or thick paper. This handout will walk you through the process of exporting it as a PNG and proofing it. Take a look at the printed proof. If there are photos that are too dark, colors that don't look good in print or other things that you might not have noticed on screen, now is the time to fix them. It's not a bad idea to proof the again just to see the changes on paper again. The video below will explain how to export the calendar a a PNG and then proof it.
