Hi all, I wonder if it would be possible, currently or in a future update, to allow more customization in the borders. I would like to have a mirrored border on the bottom and a single colour border on the other 3 sides. I often find that if I'm working with a large image I can get artefacts in my border that I don't want. For context I print portraits of pets against a single colour background.

At the minute my solution is to just make sure that if my border is 1" then I keep my subject 1" away from the edge but this isn't mega convenient.

Hope you guys have a solution for me!

Hi there, thanks for your response. That's not quite what I mean, I will attach some images to illustrate what I want. It might be that this software is mostly used for photography so the issues I have aren't common.

So I have 3 images attached. I can either choose to have no mirrored border and instead use the colour of my background as seen in the third image. This isn't desirable as it means I need to get the fold perfect. Or I can have a full mirrored border as in the first image, this as you can see from the image, results in some artefacts depending on where my subject is in the image. The solution to this would be to make my subject smaller and so further away from the border so it isn't mirrored. The second image titled 'bottom mirrored' is the effect I would like to achieve. So I only mirror the bottom and the sides have a solid colour border so the border is a mix of two things.

I hope this makes sense but please ask any questions for clarification.

Maybe Mike has a trick way, but I can't think of a way to make a mirrored border on one side only.
Better wait for him or maybe Terry

Have you tried stretch instead of mirror?  That would seem to be the better solution in this case.
