Export TIFF with bleed?

Recommended Posts

Maybe I missed a few things over the years. A TIFF could have a bleed? Where to set this up? Or does this option moved unintentionally to the "More" section for export?

Hi Joachim_L :)

A TIFF can be exported with bleed and therefore this option has been added to the 'More' options at export since Publisher introduced viewable Bleed options -


There's no option to set bleed in a new document in Affinity Photo, however any document with bleed (ie an .afpub file) will be honoured on import and export. I hope this clears things up :)

Hi!!   Sure! Here's a flyer I made....  I placed a FUCHSIA BORDER IN the bleed....  so it is very visibile if rendered....   I have export set to TIFF CMYK --- INCLUDE BLEED.  

2 Screenshots...and the actual TIFF file.   

#1.  It would be great for any feature outside of PDF to actually include the bleed since it is an option you can click on.  
#2:  I WOULD LOVE to SEE what is in the bleed at all times! WHY is it CROPPED??! It'd be cool if the BLEED MENU had an "Opacity" slider...

Thanks for the screenshots - I can see your document is using an Artboard and I believe this is a known issue when exporting an Artboard to TIFF with bleed.

Please select the Artboard layer, then press delete - you should be asked if you want to 'Keep or discard' the objects, select Yes to keep the objects and you should now see the document is using a single canvas, rather than Artboards.

Exporting the document to TIFF should now retain the bleed. As mentioned this is a known issue, so I'll get the development report 'bumped' now for you.

I hope this helps :)

That would be REALLY cool..... if "include bleed" option worked with literally every other option along with PDF... hahaha!!!   

I don't know if I can do the "No Artboard" option JUST to be able to use bleed...  I LIVE by the artboards!!!  It's one of my favorite aspects of Affinity!!  :)

Thanks for updating us here @TonyO & my apologies for the delayed response.

I can confirm this is still logged with our developers as a bug, and I'll be sure to 'bump' this for you now - our apologies for any inconveniences caused here due to this.

Along with the bleed setting, could you also add the option to include marks as well? Bleed is more useful with crop marks.

I will be sure to log this separately as an improvement request with our devs for you also :)
