Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Designing with bleeds, crossovers, and borders , part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
We are going to take a look at designing with bleeds, with white space borders…around your images and working with images that cross over from one side of the…spread to the other. So firstly, working with a bleed.…In this case, we have an opening spread where the image bleeds off all four sides. …Another example of the same technique and another, but the bleed could…just be a single page facing a page of text and other images and doesn't…necessarily need to bleed off all four sides.…
Here it's just bleeding off of three and the same here, or in this example, it…is bleeding off of three sides and allowing enough space on the right-hand side…on the right-hand page to begin the article with a column of text or in this…example, it is just bleeding off of the left and right-hand sides but not of…the top, and a bleed can also kind of facilitate a transition between one page and another.…Here we have a one-page bleed, also a cross over to the previous page which is…followed by another single page bleed which kind of gives a sense of continuity…

Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
