In this area you can design the layout, add photos and text and complete your layout. The following guiding elements have been added to facilitate your work:
around the worksheet there is a red “border” whose height varies according to the type of selected page and product. This space is the bleed area. This is a measurement of key importance when your are positioning elements near the edge of the page. If you wish to add photos near the edge of the page, you must position them so that they cover the WHOLE of this red area, so as to avoid annoying uneven white lines in the prints. Once the red area is trimmed, it will NOT appear in the finished product (therefore avoid placing important parts of the photo in this area). Please do NOT place any elements on the first red line (the innermost one), as this could result in uneven cutting when binding the album.
if the album you are working on is soft bound (therefore cut along the centre), the workspace will consist of two facing pages with a black shade along the centre of the double page. This element will not appear in the print and it is there to indicate the millimetres that may not be clearly visible because of the soft binding.
That is why it is recommended that in products with this kind of binding you do not position important parts of your images in the exact centre of the double page.
within all types of photo books we have provided further textual explanations on how to design the layout correctly, and take into consideration bleed and trim lines. These are non-printable elements and are there only for information purposes.
All non-printable elements can be momentarily hidden from view in the workspace by selecting in the menu bar: VIEW > hide non-printable elements.
