Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Packaging and archiving the project, part of Designing a Magazine Cover.
So, let's imagine that the cover has been printed, it looks great, and now we're ready…to celebrate, but just before we do, one last thing, and that is that we want to package the project.…In creating our cover, we would have experimented with various different images, we may have…a folder full of lots of assets that we never actually ended up using.…So we just want to narrow it down to a folder that contains only the things that we ended…up using in this cover, and we can do that using the Package command.…
This is just going to gather up everything all of the linked files in this document and…put them in a single folder.…There was a time when this command was used to make a package to send to the commercial…printers, but these days most printers will prefer to receive a print ready PDF.…It's easier for you, it's easier for them, and it's less prone to error.…But the Package command is still useful because it provides a quick and effective way of gathering…up everything that's used in the project and by implication, separating those things out…
