Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing images, part of Creating Long Documents with InDesign.
Some long documents are pure text, but most contain at least some placed graphics.…When you place images into an InDesign document…you have several options to choose from that will affect the image's…appearance in InDesign.…Let's see some of those options.…So let's start by placing some graphics in our layout, and I'll select three of…these Photoshop files. And I know these have some layers that I may or may not…want visible in my layout,…so I can click on Show Import Options to get the dialog box I need to make the…settings. Or I can deselect it and I can hold Shift while I press Open.…
I actually prefer the method of holding Shift, because the potentially annoying…thing about checking the box is that it will make this Import Options dialog…box pop up every time you place text in graphics files until you deselect that box.…Holding Shift only gives you the options when you want them.…Also note that for each file format the Image Import Options are sticky,…meaning that the last-chosen ones will stick and be applied to all new images…
