mods- please don't move my thread to the photoshop section as this is to do with print labs and markers. Thanks,

Hi all,

I need some help on cropping for printing markers. I know how to crop in Photoshop and it's not really about that :lol: It's about, for example, I had an image I wanted of my daughter and cropped it to an 8x10", put my watermark on there. I thought it would end up as I cropped it but it didn't as they took more off the image in print production. Doesn't matter if I use RoesPro etc a it's the same.

The lab said something about markers but quite a lot of my image was lost even though I had pre-cropped it in Photoshop at 300 resolution.

My Q is, how do I work out what they will take in their markets and adjust for it in my photoshop cropping? I need to send some prints off of a group shot and worried I might loose too much in the marker and they get scalps cropped off or something lol.

Thanks ever so much.

P.S. I use Colab.

Allow approx 1/8th of an inch to be cropped by the printers. Any more and they have a problem at their end.
