Include full-page images in the PDF

By default, all images in the PDF will be sized down to fit within your specified margin and page dimensions (see “Adjust PDF trim size and margins”). However, you may designate an image to be “full bleed”, which means that it will take up the entire page and extend into the bleed area beyond the page, creating a graphic that is flush with the edge of the book in the final product. To do so, you’ll need to use a process instruction (see “Add special layout instructions”).

  1. In your Word manuscript, find the “HED Image holder” paragraph that contains your image filename.

  2. Insert a new paragraph below your image holder paragraph, and apply the “HED Processing instruction” style to it.

  3. Type the following text inside your new HED Processing instruction paragraph: IMAGE-SIZE=fullbleed

Your Word manuscript should look like this:
