Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Sketching thumbnails, part of Designing a Magazine Layout (2009).
I know you are rearing to get going with this but before you do, we need to…sketch some thumbnails and this will save us a tremendous amount of time and it…will help clarify our thoughts and result in a much better layout.…Now, these are my thumbnails. They may not mean anything to you but they have…been tremendously useful to me and you will notice that I have actually drawn…them on a grid work of the document itself. So I've got to show you how we can…do this, how we can print out thumbnails that have a column grid on them and…this might be of use to you.…
Of course, your thumbnails don't need to do this and really your thumbnails may…just be the airsickness bag that you took out of the sick bag in front of you…and started scribbling on your flight over here and that's actually how these did originate.…But if you want a more structured approach to it, here is a possible solution.…So we are still in Layout 3 and here we are on our master page. We need to…actually switch to a Document page here. So I have gone to the first spread in our document.…

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.
