Need some help from those who have done cropping for magazine print...

The guidelines I have are:

files should be Adobe RGB 1998 . tiff files-
the book size will be 9.125 x 11 (meaning horizontal spreads should be 18.25 x 11")
300 dpi.

Am I correct if I just export my edited shots to .tiff with those dimensions? (do not make images larger, checked)

or

crop them in LR with custom aspect ratio and export full size?

Sorry, new to this!


My problem with cropping in LR, parts of my images are cut that make the image what it is. Can I add to the original image to make the ratio crop better?

Croping to the ratio that it is being published will lose you some of your image.

Generally, the publishers will crop to suit the subject &/or whatever page layout they are looking for.

However, in an attempt to have them leave the image as you would like it to be seen, crop it to their ratio whilst making the image look as good compositionally (is this even a word? :rolleyes:) as you can.

So the pages are nothing but the image(s)? No mention of allowing for bleed? Tiff files saved in Mac or IBM PC Byte Order?

As a designer, personally I'd prefer the image not to be cropped, as long as it's larger than the page size I can then position it where I need it... this is assuming there is copy to go over it etc. (If not then feel free to ignore me)


As has been said if you do crop you should add 3mm all round for bleed (IBM or mac tiff files shouldnt make a difference)

Yes, they will be full page printed.

Here's another question... The way the image is, If i crop to that aspect ratio (as someone mentioned) I'll loose some of my image. I assume I can expand the image edges with some sort of fill so that the crop will fit more of "MY" shot and just have an outer border... correct?
