Spreading your image across the gutter

Spreading your image across the gutter

How to create a bleed across the spread of a Libro.

  Available as a PDF here

 

1. You must find the middle of your picture that you wish to spread across the gutter. Drag a guide to the middle or place where you wish to split the image.

 

 

2. Drag another guide 1/2” to the right-handside of previous guide. Now use the crop tool snapped to the guide on the right-handside. Save this image with the same name with _left somewhere in the name. Do not forget the extra part of the image will go into the InDesign document and that is the part on the templates marked repeat.

 

 

 

3. Drag another guide 1/2” to the left-handside of splitting guide(the initial guide you created.) Now use the crop tool snapped to the guide on the left-handside. Save this image with the same name with _right somewhere in the name. Do not forget the extra part of the image will go into the InDesign document just as the left handside will and that is the part on the templates marked repeat.

 

 

 

 

4. Now you can use the images with _left or _right in the title in your InDesign document. Past the appropriate file in the left Vs. right side pages. Make sure you are including the 1/2’ of the repeat image in the space provided on the B Master page templates. Otherwise, if you do not place the repeat of the image in the provided 1/2” you will see the repeat in your finished Libro.
