  1. OK, so what I've assumed were crop marks (as in, targets for cutting, so should lie within the bleed area) aren't at all - they always line up with the edge of the document. I just printed out a pdf and measured them. So what does setting up a document with a (eg) 3mm bleed achieve, if it isn't represented in the final pdf? I still had to manually 'oversize' my document, and may as well have not set up the bleed in the first place. Slightly confused. Walt, in Test1 I overlaid the image on a gradient, in a doc set up as 65x240 with 3mm bleed. those trim marks I thought were crop (bleed) marks, so I was confused that they didn't intersect the gradient. So, I did test3 - which is a gradient larger than the artboard, but nothing else. the trim marks now intersect the gradient as I had expected. When I took that doc and added an image, the pdf output was constrained within the trim marks again. I haven't included an image of that, because frankly by that point I'd lost the plot. Anyway, I've worked around it, but am left feeling that the bleed issue may as well be completely ignored if we can't see it on proofs or final artwork, and have to manually oversize to take it into account. Ahem. i'm off to look out my Crayola set... Test3.pdf Test1.pdf
  2. Yep, did that - but the crop marks point to white space, and they should cut the gradient overlap, surely
  3. This should be easy, but I've never used designer before, so bear with me. I have a b/w image which I want to superimpose on a gradient background. I made a new project with artboard, and made a pixel layer bigger than the artboard (tutorial said stuff overlaps the edges of the artbord, but is still there!), in order to cover the bleed. Yet when I export to test, with bleed marks switched on, the gradient clearly doesn't reach them. How do I sort my blead out please?
  4. Thanks for the tip - a good workaround, much appreciated! :-) Sean
  5. Love the look and feel of Affinity Photo - just on demo at the mo, but will probably purchase. One thing I need to do, though, is export stacks from LR to open in layers - I can do this from a menu in LR to PS, could we please have this (or something like it) in Affinity? Doing it manually (copy/paste) is fine if there's only a few layers, but starts to get tedious when you get into double figures, or higher... Thanks! :-) Sean ETA: Just seen the 'focus stacking' item in the 'frequently requested' thread - sounds like this could be a part of that functionality, though I need to average layers, not focus stack...
