How to Make Page Bleeds

Pulling Bleeds

If an image, is cropped to the page edge, and there is enough image available, simply pull the crop box past the page edge to accommodate for the page bleed. The same is true for text boxes when they are used as graphic elements, such as a background design. As demonstrated in the examples below, Pull Bleed-Before and Pull Bleed-After, the size of the photo allows the background color to easily be extended with no visual loss or problem in the layout.
