    Problem with Bleeds Involving Art on Verso Pages

    potterjazz

      I have a document that has art (like photographs) that go out to the trim, top, left and right, on chapter openers. I have set the document bleed to 1 pica and made sure these photos extend past the margins on the InDesign pages. However, when a chapter opener is a verso page, and I do all this, the part of the art that extends past the right margin shows up on the left side of the PDFs created in the way I create all PDFs for printers (using their Distiller settings). If this is not going to show up on the final printer, I don't mind, but I don't understand why I see these parts of images from verso pages, given that the bleed is supposed to go all around the document page, including the spine/fold area, are showing up on the following recto page on the PDF. Worrisome for my production staff who check printer PDFs. Any insight would be most welcome.
