This option area allows you to control the size and position of your masthead image or slideshow within your masthead frame image.

If haven’t already done so, make sure you understand what a masthead frame image is and how masthead framing works, before continuing on.

Setting frame inner offsets

If you are using a masthead frame image, your actual masthead image or masthead slideshow sits “within” the masthead frame. It’s precise location can be controlled by typing different pixel amounts into the four different inner offset areas, or by clicking the “plus” and “minus” buttons next to the four input areas.

As you change the offsets, ProPhoto’s preview will update in real time, giving you feedback on the precise size and positioning of your masthead image. If there is not enough contrast between the solid-colored preview area, you can change the preview color on the far right of the option area.

The four input areas control the distance from the edge of the masthead frame and the beginning of the masthead image area, from the left, right, top and bottom.

Be aware though, these options only control the size of the masthead image inside of the masthead frame.  These offsets DO NOT control the size of the masthead area overall.  (Again, for more information on that, see the masthead frame tutorial which is linked to above.)

Frame offsets and masthead image size

Every time you change one of the frame inner offsets, the size of the masthead image area is also changed. Be sure to note the updated image size recommendations for your masthead image/s if you’ve made a change. These size recommendations update in real time as well as you increment the inner offset input areas.
