Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Fine-tuning the layout, part of Designing a Magazine Layout.
There are a number of fine tuning adjustments that we need to make to the…layouts. Some of them, I have already made. I will just point out what they are…and others I am going to do with you.…So, on the opening spread I realize that my deck head here, it wasn't…breaking quite right and I also had neglected to apply to the awful name, …the bold character style, so that that gets distinguished from the rest of the text. …In several places, where the image bleeds of the bottom, I have removed…the footer. This is going to leave us with just one footer per spread but…that's fine. If the left page is page 48, the reader can figure out that the…right page is page 49.…

So, I have…removed those and I have also replaced this picture. I realized that I had the…wrong picture in there.

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.
