If I crop the pages so that the crop marks and registration marks are gone, the pages will be too small. I need to retain the full image size, but get rid of the marks that are jutting into the image.
Maybe I'm not explaining this clearly ... the bleed size of the image area on each page is correct. But the crop marks, instead of being offset so they fall OUTSIDE the bleed edge, actually extend into the bleed area.
The marks should be offset a couple points more than the bleed size -- e.g., if there's a 9 pt bleed, the marks should be offset 12 pts or 15 pts.
But they aren't -- they were offset less than 9 pts, so they don't fall outside the bleed edges. They extend into the bleed area.

Shanti, it's a setting in the export to PDF options of InDesign. Make sure you have crop marks unchecked in the that dialog.
