    Default Free software that can print with 'Crop Marks'?

    Hi guys, I'm stuck on someone else PC and am looking for some freeware/shareware/open source software that can open image files and print them out with crop marks..

    Why do I want to do this?

    I have a design with a white background and I want to print it out to a certain size, say 10.5cm wide.. However, the white background of my design blends with the white paper and I can't find the edges.

    I know, I could use a ruler.. But that doesn't quite have the look I desire.

    Cheers.

    Photoshop will do, so maybe you could give the Gimp a go.

    What did you make your design with? You could increase the canvas size by one pixel each side and draw them on.

    Inserting a border is probably the easiest way to do this. Most graphics programs should be able to do this.

    Cheers guys.

    I ended up drawing them in with MS Paint.. Then printing with irfanview.

    I designed the images in Photoshop and would usually use the built-in crop marks of Photoshop, but yeah.. I wasn't at my computer and I wasn't thinking ahead.

    It all worked out though.. They came in about 0.5mm under the size that I intended, but it was close enough.

    For future reference, or for others, Polyview will do it.
