InDesign automatically embeds any images in your Microsoft Word document inside your layout.
It’s a nice feature, but the problem is the embedded images don’t live anywhere on your computer. They aren’t editable and they also make your InDesign file much larger than necessary.

Today’s challenge was to look at each face on the exercise file provided, study the defined light source associated with it, and then draw the shapes that would form the cast shadows.
I’m looking forward to seeing what Von did with this!
