    Hi Martin,

    Great article that is an excellent tutorial for restarting with Capture One.

    I do have some problems with the print settings though. I aim to have a perfectly aligned image with borders. When I select no margins, zoom to fill and a cell border of .7cm, the image is not centred although it should be (there is bit more space than .7cm on one side of the image and a little less on the other side). Do you have any ideas why this might be the case?

    Paper size is A4 and the printer is Canon ImagePrograf 1000.

    Thank you very much.

      Hi Hilmar,

      Sorry for the delayed reply. This slipped through my net.

      I can’t think what might be causing this. It’s definitely not a generic Capture One Pro issue, because my prints come out exactly as planned. It might be best to reach out to the Capture One Support team, and see what they think.

      Good luck!

    hi martin,
    it’s now more than a year since you posted this guide, but it is still very helpful – thank you ! one question, is there a way in capture one (currently c1 11, changing over from lightroom two months ago) to add a *black* border to prints ? nothing fancy or fake film-like, just a small, let’s say three point or 2 mm black border ? would save me a detour to nik silver efex and the subsequent aggrandizing of the file because of having to tiff it.

    hoping this still reaches you and thanking you in advance for your kind answer,
    with season’s greetings,

      Hi Hans,

      I’m pleased you found this post useful.

      I’m not aware of any way to dynamically add a black border around the image when you print. One thing you could consider now is creating a PSD or PNG the same size as your images, and loading it at an Overlay. They can be printed, although it will go over your image, so you’d lose the width of the border around the edge of your photo. You’d also need to resize it as necessary before printing if you crop your images to non-standard aspect ratios. It might be a bit of a pain, but it’s doable.

      I hope you’re having a great festive season!
