The barely visible red square outline is called a image bleed, and is used mostly for printing and printed image size fixes. It called be added through the vast print dialog box at the end of the File tab. [File>Print>Marks and Bleed]


For the portion of the section concerning  “Color Overlay” that is mainly used by the “Separation Preview Panel” found in the Window tab.

The panel in question works with CMYK and dose not show anything if the images color mode is set to RGB.

The Black in the text is made up of different colors witch in most cases if fine, but for this image and the commercial printing process used that effect in not wanted.

The image seen above (100% Full Black) is the desired result for this image.


The rest of the lesson was mainly talking about the different kinds of printers marks, and the different localized sets-Roman & Japanese, witch changes where the marks appear depending of witch region is chosen.
