I’ve just joined and this is my first post, so hope I’m in the right place to pick someone’s brains, as I’ve been learning Graphic Design on the job for a couple of years, but have no formal training.
I’ve requested a document from a client as a PDF with 10mm bleed and 5mm margin settings. They’ve supplied a TIFF and told me ‘the original design was done so you could adjust bleed margins/resize if necessary without it affecting the design’.
I’ve set up an Indesign doc with the required margin and bleed settings, created a frame the size of the doc including bleeds, and placed the TIFF into a frame and fitted it proportionally. Most oif the content is within the margins, but a small amount of text and the company logo is sitting on the outer edge of the bleed.
Am I missing something? I’m questioning my own judgement here, but this can’t be fixed from the Tiff file right? It needs to be done in the original design file? The person supplying the image advertises as a Graphic Designer, so I don’t want to send it back a 3rd time, without being sure.
TIA for any advice.
