Questions about stretched canvas Reply

    I am ordering a 12 x 18" stretched canvas but I can't quite figure out how to get the "preview" display the end product. I dragged and dropped the picture on the canvas then zoomed in so the baby image looked larger on the screen. But when I went to "preview" the image showed exactly as before the zoom. I would like to be able to add captions i.e. baby's name and birthday etc near the bottom edge of the finished canvas. But if I don't know exactly where the edge is, how can I be sure that my captions won't get cut off?

    Hello Alice,

    You need to cover all bleed area to avoid white borders but leave details 1/4" away from the bleed area to avoid being cut off. Thank you!

    Best regards,
    Cecilia

    Cecilia,

    Thank you for your reply. I understand about the bleed area. What I don't understand is that the preview doesn't seem to show my work correctly. I have zoomed in to make the imagine larger when I used Silverlight to design my canvas. But when I went to preview, the imagine looked like I didn't zoom in at all. I am not sure if the end product will look like what I see in the preview or on the screen where my work is.

RE:Questions about stretched canvas Reply

    Hi Alice--
    1--Definitely get the stretched vs. unstretched canvases http://forum.artscow.com/ShowPost.aspx?ThreadId=62563
    2--I ordered a stretched canvas from another company some time back and what they did was mirror the 2 inches around the perimeter for the overlap. If you have Photoshop or another editing program, try to make a new canvas at 16x22 and mirror 2 inch perimeter slices as new layers. Make sure that the area being mirrored is only background stuff. You don't want to have someones arms in a portrait duplicated! Make sure the main part of the image is well away from the edge.

    You should have received them by now. How did they come out?
