Author Topic: Spacing of multiple images on one sheet...  (Read 118 times)

I'm printing three 4x6 images on one 8.5 x 11 sheet. (Canon PRO-1000)

Under the Prints tab, I've chosen 4.00 x 6.00.

Under the Printers and Settings tab > Media size, I've chosen Letter 8.5 x 11.

How do I get at least a little spacing between the two parallel images to make trimming easier? When I print the page with the three images, there is still 1/4" at the paper edges so is there a way to nudge one or both images a little to create space between them?

I have tried all the print placement options but I don't see any choice that does what I want.

There is no way to move the image as the printable area is 8.0 and 4x6 against a 4 x 6 = 8.0 inches.

BUT the easiest way to do it, would be to apply a small border, either in color for design, or in white to be invisible. Either way, you get your spacing to cut.

I haven't actually tested this by making a print my PRO-100, but visually in QU it looks like if I turn on Borderless printing in the driver, I get a small white space around all of the prints, and the prints don't seem to be bleeding off any edges.  Using IntelliSpace (a couple of other spacing options also seem to work).  This may not work with any other printer.  And of course there may be other problems with this option that I'm not seeing.  When I get a chance I 'll test this theory.

Hi George,
Your idea seems to work fine.  The expansion does chop off a little, but unnoticeable unless I am looking for it.
