    Placing a photoshop into Indesign for printing


      Hi all,


      I am working on a poster that I have made in photoshop and now it is getting time to print it. I need to set up margins and bleeds(which I should've done in the beginning) and I'm wondering if there's a way to do it in photoshop? If not, then I was wondering if it is possible to take the psd file and place it into Indesign and still maintain the full resolution for print?


      Thank you!

          I think you can work with Photoshop and print your poster correctly.

          When ready to output, use Photoshop's menü :

          File> Print command. In the Print dialog box, check the “Corner Crop Marks” box, then click the Bleed button.You can manualy transform the area of the corner crop marks directly in the overview.



          Hope this helps,

            There is a way to make a bleed in Photoshop. First drag guides to the boundaries of your image. Then increase the canvas size (Image >Canvas size). That's your bleed.

            But I think a better way is to place the PSD file in InDesign, as you suggested. If you make the InDesign file the same size as the PSD file, the resolution should be fine.
