Imported Graphics

Specialty Frames

Frames don’t have to be single items drawn from scratch.


You can join frames into one compound shape.
Specialty Frames

Select the frames you want to combine into a compound


shape. Choose Object>Paths>Make Compound Path.
Specialty Frames
Select the compound shape and go up to File>Place, or
you can copy and paste into. Selected image will show up
in your boxes.
Convert Text to Frames
Type what you want converted. Go to Type>Create
Outlines. Then you can copy and paste images into text
or place something into it.
Styling Placed Images
Once you have placed a graphic within a frame, you can
employ many techniques to style the frame or image.
Here, I changed the color of the frame to blue.
Using Clipping Paths
Raster images saved as TIFF or EPS files are always
rectangular. If you want to see only part of the image you
import, you can create a clipping path that surrounds the
part of the image that you want to see.
The rest of the image becomes transparent.
Using Clipping Paths
In Photoshop, use the Path tool to create a path around
the image.

Open Photoshop.
Using Clipping Paths
In Photoshop, use the Path tool to create a path around
the image.
Using Clipping Paths
Use Photoshop’s Paths palette menu to designate the
path as a clipping path. Save the file as a TIFF, EPS, or
Photoshop file.
Using Clipping Paths
Tip - You can have many paths saved as part of a
Photoshop file, but only one path can be designated as a
clipping path.
Using Clipping Paths
In InDesign, choose File>Place and choose the file you
have created.
Using Clipping Paths
In InDesign’s Import Options, check Apply Photoshop
Clipping Path. The image is automatically clipped so that
only the areas inside the path
are visible in the layout.
Importing Transparent Images
A transparent Photoshop file lets you see through the
pacifier to the blue background behind it.
Importing Transparent Images
Make what you want transparent, transparent, then save
a layered Photoshop file as a (PSD) file.
Importing Transparent Images
Place the image onto the page, and you can see that the
image that is supposed to be transparent, will stay this
way. Add things behind it,
and you will see through it.
Wrapping Text
Select the object that you want the text to wrap around. This can
be an imported graphic, a text frame, or an unassigned frame.
Choose Window>Text Wrap.
Type on a Path
Choose Type>Type on a Path>Options
Type on a Path
In these options there are options to work with Baseline,
Descender, Ascender and Center.
