Design&Print Tip: Spreading an image over two pages
« on: February 21, 2016, 08:48:50 PM »
Note: This is different than the example shown in the Tips&Tricks template provided with Design&Print.
Here I fit the image onto the two pages without cutting it.

To spread a photo over two pages - any size ratio:

(Assumption: No margins used)

Left page:
Create a image container as follows:
Position the container freely
Left: 0
Top:  0
Width: 2X width of page
Height: Height of page

Image fit mode: Fit into container

Right page:
Create a image container as follows:
Position the container freely
Left: - page width (negative!)
Top:  0
Width: 2X width of page
Height: Height of page

Image fit mode: Fit into container

Ubacher,

Thanks for this, very helpful.


BTW: this works for standard templates, but also for dynamics templates.
In the second case, we must simply not enable "consume files" on the image container on the left page.
Best wishes from Switzerland! :-)
