There has been discussion of a problem, but what follows seems more appropriate for Share Your Work, so a new thread, but with a courtesy link to the original thread. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/136552-bleed-area-issue-with-designer-bug-or-feature I am producing artwork to make what are notionally photo greetings cards, but I am making jpg files of the correct size at 300dots per inch CMYK colours and using those instead of photographs to produce one-off greetings cards, then uploading to the company's website and in due course receiving a card by post. https://www.papier.com/ https://www.papier.com/photos/photo-cards I have used https://www.papier.com/customise/landscape-photo-313 and https://www.papier.com/portrait-photo-315 I have found that the best way to do this is to work in pixels at 2171 by 1571 pixels, which is 7 inches by 5 inches with a 3 mm bleed area on each edge. The two that I have produced thus far were produced using PagePlus X7 as I was used to it, but they were basically simple images on a white background. This was because I was used to using PagePlus X7. I am now starting to learn how to use Affinity Designer, I am a beginner, The following is a png of a copy of a part of the new design, produced today. I have it in mind that this will be centred in a portrait format card, then using Affinity Designer to add colours at each side and into the bleed areas, with the intention that the finished card will have colour right to the edges. The image is of some language-independent glyphs, some used more than once, so as to produce a poem, with each glyph representing a whole sentence. I produced the designs as abstract designs, but if one knows the meaning of a glyph one can read the poem in any language that you know. I am wondering if readers who like a puzzle might like to try to work out the meaning of the poem. The designs are abstract but there are some clues. William These stars are so that if readers post their attempts or other comments, then the puzzle can still be new for new readers. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
