OK, this might not be exactly the answer you were looking for, but it was the easiest way I could think to explain it. I've made 4 shared ink books now...

 

If I make a 12x12 book, I format my pages to be 12x12, understanding that a little of the edges is going to get cut off. If it's a full bleed, I just make the picture go off the page a little. If it's a bordered page, I make sure I have at least 1/2 inch all the way around, an inch is preferable.

 

Does that help at all? I'd have to dig a little to find out if the measurements you're talking about are correct, and I think the way I do it is a little easier...

 

Just make sure you email Chris and ask for your full-bleed pages if you don't have a pro account.

So, doing the full bleeds, you'd just have the image run off the page and NOT extend the measurements?? It seems when I upload this to SharedInk, it doesn't recognize the extended measurements anyways...

I was wondering if it was the same.

Right. If you're making your pages in Lumapix, or some other software, it just saves the page- not what runs off it- does that make sense? So if it's a 12x12 page, but the pic extends a 1/2 inch when you export it to a jpg file to upload, the page is still 12x12.
