    Should this be handled by some sort of "Print to File" option in the Print facility?

    Hi SFA,

    No, I send my files to a commercial printing service, so I will never use the Print facility.

    In addition, I find it useful if the image is surrounded by two different shades of grey (i.e. middle grey and white) as references in order to judge global tonality and colors (and its adjustments). I like the way darktable is allowing this in a special proof mode, see below.

    In other words, it would be great if the white border could be visible in the viewer already, not just added in the export process.

    Fully agree, we should get this feature before exporting to see how it looks like. I just do not understand how such simple feature is not part of capture one already...

    We are now in a digital word where we mostly expose our pictures online. White/grey/black frame should be a must have in such software. 

    I hope this will be taken into consideration soon :-)

    BeO,

    So what sort of file do you send to the print provider?

    If you want a specific size of print with the border included, do you make allowance for the border in your export size or do you send regular size and allow the printer to adjust for the border?

    However, the original question seemed to be about adding a border to an output file rather than for proofing purposes alone or exporting/Output processing.

    I choose a paper format. Depending on the provider the web or installed software allows to resize images on the paper template and align it in the center but some don't have a specific border funcionality, which makes is a fiddle everytime.

    If the border is included already in the image I can settle for my own preferred border defintion in C1.

     

    There's nothing wrong if one feature can be used for different purposes...

    Absolutely, the purpose is not only for printing but aswell for digital presentation in a website or on a social network. I hope capture one can add this simple and basic feature in C1

    So you export as a jpg?

    Or you can print to a jpg. Maybe with a caption?

    What difference have I not recognised?
