In a flash exposure system, it is frequently desired to prevent uncontrolled light rays from illuminating the inter-image space. When two different paper sizes are to be processed, i.e. 8.5 inch paper and 10 inch paper, the inter-image space varies. When the light baffle is pivoted downwardly, an 8.5 inch image can be recorded on the photoconductive surface. When the baffle is pivoted upwardly, a 10 inch image may be recorded on the photoconductive surface. The light baffle is operator actuatable by the selection of the appropriate operating mode on the printing machine console. Preferably, the baffle is hinged and pivots in response to a signal by depression of the selected button on the machine console.

In operation, a hinged light baffle is employed.
