Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating captions, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
Our next step is to add captions to our article and let's just zoom in on this…caption down here. We have one there and other one right there, there, there…and on the final spread in the outside columns and just to reference back to…the grid that we are using. Remember we have 5-column units for each of our…text frames and the outside columns are 2-column units wide, wide enough to add…the caption which is smaller in point size than the body text.…
We are in layout24. This is our work in progress. You can place the captions…from a text file. I will just show you where that is. It's right there in the…text folder which is in the SF_layout_ finished folder in the Exercises File folder. …However, we are not going to do it that way. We are going to do it in a…more exciting way than that. In the Links folder, all of the images that we are…using have XMP metadata and as part of the metadata, there is this IPTC core…which stands for International Press Telecommunications Council.

Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
