White space / margin on large images

Would be nice to control the amount of white space around the large preview image area.

Some art directors like seeing images with white/negative space around it.

I remember one of my AD picture desks asking for “Polaroid style submission” and I couldn’t be bothered going to the office for the laptop so I think I created a png frame and used the watermark feature.

It was a while ago so don’t remember the dimensions I used for the watermark. It may be a work around for you.

good call on the work-around... i'll do that in a pinch, but would be really nice to keep the padding around the image and not have the watermark hide any part of the image. I think younger AD/CD's just like the white look w. lots of white space better more than the blackout look. Must be a weird Instagram side effect!

I did it that way as I needed to keep the size to 10X8 so adding padding would have made he canvas go over (unless it fits image to page (that would work). Let me know if you need how I did it not that it is hard
