G'day all.........let's see if I can achieve the (seemingly) improbable!

I do a LOT of canvas printing, usually with edge mirroring turned on, and it works a treat. But occasionally I come up against a situation where on one of the sides (usually the bottom) the mirroring just looks wrong wrong wrong. So what I'm hoping you can help me to do (without needing to wander into Photoshop territory) is to mirror my image on 3 sides, and insert a colour (probably white) onto the fourth side of the mirrored area.
I'll try to insert an image so that you can get a better idea of what I mean...........

Many thanks
Mike G

Have you tried intelli-mirror?  That's the situation it was meant for.  Note that your preview will look the same as what you pictured because the "intelli" part is not calculated until print time, so you would have to turn on print preview in the driver and actually print it and look at the driver preview to see if it is working the way you expect before you print.

Curious if my suggestion worked for you.  There are other ways to do the same thing.

G'day Mike,

Sorry for the slow reply. Christmas & New Years holidays and all that stuff. (But that's all the days off I get until Christmas 2022!!)

Intelli-mirror was the first thing I tried before I posted in this forum. It certainly worked perfectly along the bottom edge of this particular image, and the left & right sides wer fine too, but along the top edge of the image (where there is really only a VERY small amount of detail) it struggled. It ended up leaving quite large digitised smear marks (for want of a better description?)
I've attached images of the top edge for you to see. Interestingly, the preview screen in Qimage did not show any of this smearing, it only became apparent when the image rolled off the printer.

Ideal world?
Intelli-mirror along the bottom edge, standard mirror along the other 3 edges.  Huh?

I know......... I'm not asking for much, am I?! Tongue Grin
