I need to print 8x10 with a 1/4 white border all around.
My solution was to use a 1/4" white stroke border and print the crop lines.
However, only the vertical crop strokes are printing--not the horizontal. I will have to do very careful and error-prone measuring to trim the unmarked dimension.
How do I fix the crop strokes? Is there another solution?
Is there a way to print a line around the 8x10 cell size and still have a 1/4 white border inside the cell?
Thanks in advance,
Have you cropped the image to 8 x 10" in the develop module before going to the print module?
I am printing on 8.5x11 paper. I crop the image to 8x10 in Develop. But my goal is to print the image 7.5x9.5 with a 1/4" border inside the 8x10 size. My solution was to use a white 1/4" stroke border and use the "Crop Marks" to guide me to the right places to cut.
My problem is the crop marks are not printing correctly. I even tried using the "Page Background Color" to show where to crop and leave the 1/4 border, but even that isn't printing correctly.
Is anyone else having this problem? Or, more importantly, know of a work-around? or where to get tech help?
You are probably hitting the unprintable part of the page, with your crop marks and also if you set a background colour. Perhaps consider changing print settings to a borderless mode, but if doing so, make sure to use a true-to-scale option for borderless printing, if that is available. Otherwise with a standard - not true to scale - borderless mode, everything would get silently enlarged by a few % in the printing, and so not keep to requested dimensions.
So far as your image's aspect ratio: you can directly set a print cell to the required dimensions. Then you can set a Zoom to Fill option for this cell, which duly auto-crops your image to the right shape on the fly as needed - so, just for the purposes of this particular output, and without altering the image's current general-purpose aspect ratio that is otherwise seen in Develop or in Library or when Exported.
Bingo! Thank you. Changing the print settings to "borderless" solved my issues.
You are kind to have responded.
Glad if it helped. Not all print drivers provide a borderless mode which keeps to scale. AFAICT where no such choice is offered, you can safely assume that auto enlargement will happen - but, will not be previewed by LrC.
