Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Fitting images with object styles, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
Our next step is to make an Object Style, and apply that Object Style to our…pictures to make our pictures fit the frames. I am going to come and dismiss…Bridge; we don't need that for a while. We have the text and the master items…layer locked. So we can't interfere with those. I am going to select any…picture, it doesn't really matter which one and then come to the Object menu,…choose Fitting > Frame Fitting Options. I want my Reference Point to be the…center point and I want Fitting on Empty Frame to be Fill Frame Proportionally.…Click OK and I am now going to come to my Objects Styles panel.…

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.
