Solve a calendar orientation layout issue in iPhoto Apps
I tried making my first calendar today, and I discovered a tip which may be useful to others.

I noticed that if you choose a six-frame layout for any given month, the default arrangement is to have a large, wide photo frame horizontally spanning the bottom of the screen. If you try dragging a portrait shaped photo to this area, iPhoto automatically changes the layout to make the main split vertical, rather than horizontal. Very clever, but if you then add a landscape dimension photo to this frame, it doesn't change back to the default layout and it will heavily crop the resulting photo.

The trick is to change the layout to a different number of frames, and then change back to the six-frame layout. This might work for other photo frame arrangments where iPhoto magically changes the style of a frame (from portrait to landscape or vice versa), but doesn't change it back.

Solve a calendar orientation layout issue in iPhoto
Authored by: chjabu on Dec 15, '06 12:20:48PM

I just made a bunch of calendars as Christmas gifts and found the photo layout arrangement to be very flakey. Adding one photo often changed the whole layout around and it was sometimes impossible to get photos into the frames the way I wanted them. Anybody know anyway to trick iPhoto into letting you out the photos exactly where you want them?

To stop iphoto from changing the layout and orientation of photos on your calendar turn auto-layout off in the calendar settings.
