Bleed question. Why is this occurring? PNG document created with millimeters and PNG document created with inches.

Recommended Posts

I created the same exact PNG size — the only difference was millimeters versus inches.

Pic 1 — Millimeter PNG document setup.

Pic 2 —  Millimeter PNG document opened with a  .125bleed.  This bleed is attached to the entire edge.

Pic 3 —- Inches PNG document setup 

Pic 4 —- Inches PNG document with a .125 bleed but this bleed is outside my document.

Hi @Margarite Hamilton,

I'm not seeing this in V1, I've set up two identical designer documents using the dimensions shown in your screenshots with the only difference being the Unit of measurement, after assigning the bleed within the doc the width was identical, as shown below:

Doc 1, set 4"x4" 300DPI 0.125" Bleed:


Doc 2, set 101.6x101.6mm 300DPI 3.175mm Bleed (Bleed numerical value rounds to 3.2mm on the UI, but it is 3.175mm):


Are you certain that you set the bleed value correctly on the document created with the mm unit of measurement? When assigning a bleed value, you can change the unit of measurement over to inches and the app will perform the conversion to mm for you.

If you're still struggling can you save the two files and provide a copy of the .afdesign files so we can take a look?
