Padding allows you to add blank space to the top, bottom, left or right of your image that is sent to the printer. The blank space is either white or black, depending on your selection for the photo layout background color.

  • Add positive values to the padding to increase the margins
  • Add negative values to the padding to decrease the margins

This can help you compensate if your printer is cutting off part of your photo or the sheets are not aligned correctly.


  • Start small! Make adjustments in 1/4 inch increments (0.25) to start. 
  • You can also use padding to get clever results with sheets that already have content printed on them or leave a space for the guest to write on the photo after it prints.
