thanks. what units are they? what is that in inches?
page is 11” X 17”.

Bleed: 6,875 X 10,497
Trim 6,625 X 10,187
Live 6,125 X 9,687

this is great.

Those numbers are in inches. In parts of Europe the decimal point is replaced by a comma. So in the states it would be:

6.875in x 10.497in for Bleed
6.625in x 10.187in for Trim
6.125in x 9.687in for Live

this is great.

also, to add to what Teyon said, in the tutorial he says that 11x17 is the standard size for the original page, and then it is scaled down to print size, explaining the smaller numbers.

Excellent tutorial, as well. Next step is for me to take some initiative and do something with this helpful knowledge stuff.

Hi, guys,

Thanks a lot for your posts, really glad you´ve liked it and I am really looking forward to seeing more of you posting sequential art (not only traditional, but I also drool at the thought of seeing your CG talent applied to a comic).

Thanks for spotting that print size thing too.
You´re right, those print size measures for Bleed, Trim and Live area are all in inches.

You may have a problem when you acale your 11" X 17" page down to print size since they don´t correspond exactly to 6.875" X 10.497" (it´s one of those things I never understood why nobody ever mentions).

Most of the times I just uncheck the "contrain proportions" when resizing the page in Photoshop and disregard the slight distortion, otherwise you can just work in a 11.137" X 17" page.

I may have a couple more tidbits, mostly about pacing and sequential tricks, but I didn´t want to get too caught up on rules and techniques for now.

After all, you have to give your Muse room to breathe.

This is great, just what I needed when I needed it Thanks a bunch dude!
I am working on a idea for a graphic novel (hate the word Comic) using lightwave instead of the tradition pencil/ink route.

Great tutorial! I like the clarity of it, especially with all the accompanying examples.
More motivation for me to get my ass into gear and work on my stalled webcomic and/or start a new more traditional one...
