Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Extending an image, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
You may remember from a couple of movies back, I pointed out this image which…is too close or the top of the tower is too close to the top of the page. …We are bleeding this image off the edge to give a sense of limitlessness to this image. …But we are undermining that by the fact that it's just looking too cramped out there.…We would like there to be more sky; unfortunately in the image itself there isn't. …However, we can add some. We are g oing to take advantage of the way…Links work in InDesign by Clicking on the image and holding down the Option+K…or the Alt+K, Double-Clicking on it to open up the image in Photoshop and I am…now going to press my F key so that I see just that image.…
Here in Photoshop, we are going to add some sky. To do this we need to add…more canvas to the image and so that the canvas that we add is going to added…as transparency rather than the background color. We need to unlock our…Background layer.

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.
