I Made my 2020 Calendar on my Mac with Motif

Last year I used mimeo to create my 2019 calendar. It worked well.

This year I went to create my 2020 calendar, and after duplicating the 2019 calendar and renaming it 2020, I double-clicked it, and the app never loaded. I tried it a few times, then gave up.

I downloaded Motif from the Mac App Store and opened it through the CREATE menu on the Photo app.

It opened right up.

After dragging the photos that I wanted to use in my new calendar, it's simple to drag and drop photos on to each page.

Here are some of the features you can use when creating your Motif calendar.

I like the feature that allows you to add a photo to an important date.

I'd like to be able to edit the text more to allow the background photo to show up more.

I had an overall great experience with Motif making my calendar for 2020.
