Rasterise crops image which messes up the bleed

Recommended Posts

When an element is rasterized any content outside of the boundaries of the combined artboards is removed. I'm guessing this is to reduce file size by eliminating content that isn't in view. The problem is that when you have set bleed on the artboards for printing and then rasterize an element it actually crops the portion that is meant to be part of the bleed. This may sound confusing but is illustrated in the attached jpg.


It would be ideal to either have the option to crop content outside the artboards' boundaries or to take the document's bleed into consideration if it auto crops.

Yes, I can confirm this behaviour. Rasterizing shape/object clips it to the arboard size with no respect to bleed and original size.


Rasterizing shape in designer should definitely keep the original shape dimensions, even if outside of artboard.

Or as Keven is suggesting – there should be some control when and how it is cropped.


Attaching file with vector shape before and after rasterization (cropped to the artboard)
