Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with text wrap, part of Designing a Magazine Layout.
All right, let's apply the Text Wrap to the map that occurs on the bottom of page…48 and we will also need to apply a little bit of scaling and nudging to the…map so that it makes the Text Wrap but it doesn't interfere with the text too…much in a way that it's going to make the text unreadable. This is the finished…version, we are working in layout22.…So I am going to zoom in on this area, Command+Spacebar or Ctrl+Spacebar, Click…and drag, select the map. And we will apply the Text Wrap to it. So if you have…the Text Wrap open choose it from there, if not, it's there under your Window menu.…

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.
