Creating cutouts

I am here in the finished version of the newsletter just to show you this image treatment here, the cutout of the dog, and that's what we want to do next. And once cutout, we can use the clipping path of the shape to create an interesting text wrap. So in newsletter07, our work in progress, we now have the images fitted and cropped and scaled where appropriate, but for this image, we now need to make the cutout. So here's how I'm going to do it. I'm going to select the image, hold down the Option or the Alt key and double click on the image and then the image will open up in Photoshop.

We could do this in InDesign but frankly, it's just easier to do it in Photoshop. We may see an Embedded Profile Mismatch, in which case we'll choose to use the embedded profile. There's our lovely dog portrait and I'm going to press my F key now in Photoshop. That's going to hide anything that may be in the background so that we can just focus on what were have here...
