Thank you sweet readers who remind me each month to make a desktop calendar for you. I enjoy them, too! We had SNOW in Atlanta last week and this is a frosty little bud from my front yard.

Free Editing Software

I edited this photo with a free editing program from OnOne Software called Perfect Effects 4 (click over and download it for yourself). I used the effect Textures – Paper: Rice Paper Light.

Perfect Effects 4 Free can be used as a standalone or directly with Adobe® Lightroom®, Photoshop®, Photoshop Elements, or Apple® Aperture® and does not apply any watermarks nor impose limited-time usage.

Here’s the original as a comparison:


I start in Lightroom, choose to edit in Perfect Effects 4, and if I apply changes it saves an edited copy back into Lightroom for me. Easy peasy.

Enjoy your calendar and your new software! If you’re on Pinterest, hover over the calendar image at the top of this post and click Pin It to share with others!
