Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Packaging, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
Okay, the project is finished. It's been sent to the printer. We eagerly await…its return. In the meantime what we can do is package the project and archive it. …There have been numerous images that we have come into contact with that…we have not actually used. And we have got various different iterations of this…file as we have been incrementing it with every series of changes along the way. …We want to just archive the final version along with only the images that we have used.…
So to do this, we are going to go to File and Package, and then here's a…Summary of the Fonts, the Links, the Colors, etcetera. But this is all stuff…that's really now addressed through the live preflight as much but it's not…going to hurt, so just make sure that all of our images are linked. We have a…warning triangle there. It's warning us that the images are RGB but we know…that since we are using the appropriate PDF preset then that's not a problem.…And the fonts, they are all there, everything is good. So we are going to go…

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.
