TOPIC: eye candy effects & printing

eye candy effects & printing 8 months 3 weeks ago #5535

When using Eye Candy ShadowLab a large transparent image is left around the shadow. The edges of this transparent box show up when I go to print. Is there a setting to reduce the size of this box. Many times the edges of box are outside of the printable graphics & you have to box select way around graphics to even select the shadow. Hope this makes sense. The edges of this shadow image are screwing up my printing as it doesn't appear in the print preview...Help..

In the initial Plugins window, you choose if the effect will be inside or outside the objects (effect Location), the "margin Amount" you set for the "Outside (No Clipping)" is the box you are looking for, the smaller the shadow you produce the smaller this value can be and vice versa.

But be aware if you make it too small the shadow will be clipped.

OK Thank You. I've done that & the margin is smaller. I went down to .25 inch & it did clip bottom as you said. Changed it & it was fine. Now I will try reprinting with new margins on my effects & hope the transparent margin border will not show as much. I'll let you know. Thanks Again, Mike
