Transform your photos into holiday cards and calendars

Use image-editing software and Web sites to turn your digital photos into handcrafted greeting cards and other holiday gifts.

Make sure the photos are big enough

For best results, you'll want to use images that have as many pixels as possible. If you use tiny, 1-megapixel camera phone photos on a wall calendar, you probably won't like the results. But any digital camera capable of capturing 3 megapixels or more should give you good picture quality. Since most calendars present pictures at around 8 by 10 inches, photos taken at a minimum of 1600 by 2000 pixels will get you off to a good start. There's no harm in uploading photos shot at even higher resolutions.

After your photos are organized, upload them and use the site's tools to lay out your calendar. If you have the option, customize the calendar with important dates (birthdays, anniversaries, and so on). Then order enough copies for everyone on your holiday shopping list; the site will have them professionally printed and mailed to you, or you can arrange to send them directly to your recipients.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
