I am building my first website. For subscribing to my newsletter, I want to give away a free monthly download of the current (and next 2) month's calendars. Here is the web page where I am promoting it: [url removed, login to view]
Each month I want to be able to insert a new background .jpg for the current calendar (800 x 500 pixel created in Photoshop 7) into the program, and upload a new calendar every month to my supporting site at : [url removed, login to view] for subscribers to download.
Perhaps .exe format would be best? Please advise.
User download should install to desktop & have an icon (I will create a small floral graphic). The user must be able to (#1) with the calendar maximized to 800 x 500 pixels, type 3 lines of text into each date square (font: Verdana, Bold Italic, 14 pt, #990000), (#2) drag the minimized (200 x 125 pixel) calendars around the desktop, (#3) min/max/close each calendar, minimum = 200 x 125 px, maximum = 800 x 500 px, (#4) not absolutely necessary but it would be nice to be able to tile calendars on the desktop, (#5) must be able to click on 2 hyperlinks at the bottom of calendar - one going to homepage and one to FAQ page, (#6) right-click/print. I will provide the blank 800 x 500 px calendar .jpg which will be the background. I am unsure of project price, please suggest appropriate pricing. If not cost-prohibitive, may consider additional cost to build a Mac version also. All suggestions to improve my idea, or improve user experience would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much.

2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows
a) ready for buyer to insert 800 x 500 pixel calendar graphic as background, to be uploaded to website for downloading by website users.
