Hi, my name is Ricky and I will do my best to help you today. Unfortunately, iPhoto is no longer a supported Apple program and it is no longer possible to purchase photo goods from iPhoto. This feature was removed by apple in favor of the newer "Photos" app. It sounds like you have an old Mac with an old version of this software. To create a photo calendar you will need to use another service like Shutterfly here: https://www.shutterfly.com/calendars

Ok. I've used Shutterfly before but just not as user friendly. Thanks for your help.

You're welcome. There are also several other companies that do this, such as http://bayphoto.com
