Bleed Extender - InDesign Script

Need to quickly extend an image but can't be bothered opening it in Photoshop and air brushing in that extra 5mm of bleed? But the idea of reflecting it in InDesign on all four sides is just as painful? Not a problem with Bleed Extender, it does the copy, pasting and reflecting automactically for you. Either top, bottom, left or right you choose. Its that quick and easy.

This script can also be used to create quirky patterns with one image.
