Hi, my name is Alex Cecilio. I'm a Graphic Artist and I'm going to show you how to make bleed marks in Photoshop. So, I'm just going to go ahead and I'm actually going to draw a square. It's going to, I'm going to make it, I'm going to count, I'm going to zoom it a little bit, I'm going to count two in on each side. So, so, two num, two in each side and then two down. So, two in, two down, all the way down to the bottom. So, two up and two over. And the reason I'm doing that is because then I'm going to add, I'm going to go to my layers and I'm going to go to effects and I'm going to go to stroke and I'm going to add my line where it's going to be cropped. And then, from there, I'm going to add, I'm going to go to the corner where my cropped marks are going to be and I'm just going to draw two lines, two black lines and this is going to help me, when I print it, it's going to help me understand where it needs to be cut from this side. And hit stroke; I'm actually going to do this; make sure your lines are thick enough. So, you're going to draw it to, to match the corner, the corner edges of the blocks. Here we go. So, then, I'm just going to copy and paste that, I'm going to hold down option, get that double arrow, I'm going to pull it down or you can just do what I did before and you can pull the lines. It's a lot easier and quicker. Just one, make a line and just do that on all four sides and see actually, my red square is even on the; okay; and then one more. Okay. So, this is, now, ad then I'm going to go to view and then show and grid so that it gets rid of the grid. So, now we know where all the cropped marks are and that's when I'm going to bring my photo back in, put it on top and that's how you'll know if it's, I actually got lucky and it was in the right spot. But, that's when you're going to want to free transform your image to fit in your area that you want. But, the whole reason that this even exists is so that you can do this, you can make it shine like that and then, if you put on the bottom and you multiply this layer, that red line will show up as well the rest of the other marks so that when you print this, this is going to tell you where it's going to be trimmed, so that when you print it it's going to look more like that. And that is how you make bleed marks. My name is Alex and this is how you make bleed marks in Photoshop. Thank you.
