    Create fold marks in PS CC

    Kdesigns

      I have a 3 fold brochure with offset fold marks to accommodate bleeds and trim fold. How do I create fold marks on the file? Thanks!

          You want just lines (presumably outside the image) that show people where to fold?

           

          I don't think there's some kind of "publishing marks" feature that will give you fold marks...  There are cropping and registration marks available in the Photoshop Print Settings dialog, but I don't recall fold marks.

           

          So you could just go with a simple approach...  Expand the canvas (Image - Canvas Size) with a white background, and draw some marks where you want it folded.  You could set some guides (View - New Guide) to the precise positions you want first (e.g., 33.3%, 66.7%), then snap the lines you draw to the guides.

            Thanks Nick, that is what I thought and was hoping for a script or something for a starting point.
