How to Create a Calendar in CorelDraw

Did you know that it is very easy to create a calendar in CorelDraw? All you need to do is to set the size of the document and the 'CorelDraw's macro script will take care of the rest.

The script that is included in CorelDRAW is capable of creating a calendar at any size that you may require; it is just a matter of setting and conguring the proper settings.

In this example, I will create a letter size calendar that displays January 2014.

1. Start by creating a new document. In the New Document dialog, select Letter (A) then Landscape (B).

2. From the Tools menu, select Macros >  Run Macro.

3. When the Run Macro dialog box opens, from the Macros in: drop-down (at the bottom of the dialog), select CalendarWizard (CalendarWizard.gms) and click Run.

My Microstock Journey: How and where to sell illustrations online

My journey into microstock started last November 2013. At first I was quite skeptical about the microstock concept and I really doubted its possibilities until I tried to join and upload my vector images at VectorStock. I initially uploaded 10 images and got my first 'sale' so I created and submitted some more images.

After more than a month my works generated six (only) downloads. Although my sales is relatively small, and despite the fact that microstocks sell cheaply at the expense of a large number of sales and a large choice of microstocks, I still believe that this has a potential and could bring additional income to a contributor like me. Why? Because I know other artists who earn a lot from selling their illustrations and photos on microstock agencies.

So far, I have 43 vectors ( my approval rating is 100%) on my portfolio and 10 images are still pending or under review. My portfolio is still relatively small so I need to grow and drive more traffic on it.
