- WEEK 6: Introduction to Digital Documents
- Working with Placed Images
OverviewFirst, you learned to place multiple graphics quickly and easily. You also learned how to use the Links panel to navigate to a graphic in an InDesign document explore image resolution issues. You will see the difference between vector and bitmap graphics and explore InDesign’s relationship with Photoshop. You will also learn about libraries, which is essential when working with images.
Place Multiple GraphicsThis lesson starts with covering the Place command on the File menu. This is the basic command for placing graphics into an InDesign layout. The Place command can also be used to place multiple images into the document by holding the [Ctrl] key as the images are chosen.There are two options for placing an image, clicking an existing frame, or clicking the page. In the second option, InDesign will create a frame for the placed image. Also, understand that the size of their graphic image should be taken into consideration. By default, a graphic placed in a new frame will be placed at 100%, but things are different if the graphic is placed in a “used” frame.Next, be sure to try the Frame Fitting Options dialog box. The Frame Fitting commands you will use most often are the Fill Frame Proportionally and the Fit Content Proportionally options. The Fill Frame Proportionally option scales the graphic so that it fills the entire frame without distorting the graphic. The Fit Content Proportionally option scales a graphic so that the entire graphic is visible when placed into any size frame.
