Hi All,

I notice that when cut marks are selected, the image and cut marks are flush which makes for a delicate final trim. Is there a way to slightly increase the image bleed so that when performing the final trim, there is no "white space" visible? Or is the only option to import client files into Photoshop and then apply bleed, resave and process etc.? It would be wonderful if we could add bleed from within Qimage - is it possible?


Any guidance greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Vic

Why wouldn't you just cut on the inside edge of the cut marks?  I've never had white space when using cut marks.

I can cut perfectly, but sometimes my team needs a little help. I'm guessing this isn't doable from within Qimage?

No, there's no option to mark the wrong spot with cut marks.  Cut marks mark the edges of prints.  I've never gotten a suggestion to do something similar to what you are suggesting.  With proper cut marks at the edges of prints, you don't waste ink printing what you don't need and on the final cut where you've already cut off all the marks, it's no problem seeing where to cut because you just have one white border left (you don't have to guess on some type of bleed).  I think you'd be much better off teaching your team how to cut properly.  If they (or the equipment) is that sloppy, your prints are going to end up slightly off size too once they are cut!

Just a thought….

If REALLY needed, couldn’t he just add a 1 pixel white border?

That's an idea - but that would need to be done in Photoshop, unless there's a way to do it in Qimage?

Not understanding the last two responses.  I thought the object from the original post was to make sure there is no white space: so you actually want to cut inside the cut marks just a little so there are no white edges (cut off a sliver of the photo on each edge).  Adding a 1 pixel white border is just going to add white space if you cut at the cut marks.
