Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Examining open treatments, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
So we are now going to create a title treatment for the article, but before we…do this, let's take a look at some examples of title treatments. A big factor…in determining your title treatment is going to be how much room do you have,…how many pages are allotted to the article, and what's the quality of your…photography. If you have excellent and arresting imagery like this, and you…have the space, then you can have a fantastic opening spread with minimal…typography, beautifully set type, and just a small docket describing the…article, and a caption describing the image.…
Then we have a similar kind of approach here, a fantastic image. So let's…devote as much space to it as we possibly can. Perhaps, you don't have quite as…much space and you want to want to actually begin the text of the article on…the opening page spread, you've still given the image lots of space, and then…using the more contrasting areas of the image, where the detail isn't critical…to reverse out the type, and similar approach here with the text of the article…

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.
