Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing images, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
To get our content from Bridge into our InDesign layout, we can either drag the…images one by one or we can select multiples.…I am going to start off on my opening spread, and I want this image with the…Golden Gate Bridge. You will notice that the image doesn't fit the frame or…doesn't fill the frame. That's because we haven't yet created our object style…and applied it to the picture frames, and that's something that we will be…doing in the next step. We could have done it beforehand the order in which we…do these things is not that important at this stage.…
So I am now going to move to the next spread which is getting them into their…relevant boxes. Now, we are going to potentially run into a problem of having…the image find the right box or fit into the right picture frame, if we have…text frames to overlap.…So as a precautionary measure, I am going to come to my InDesign layout, and I…am going to need to minimize Bridge for a moment, come to my layers, and make…sure that my Text layer and my Master Items layer are both locked. That way, no…

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.
