Grabbing it from mini-bridge, I'm going to drag it into the In Design doc, and click. …And now it's placed. If I click inside and drag around I can …get the guide there that shows me that.

Place it, and center it. There. …Now you can see I did a pretty loose crop from the cover. …So I can use InDesign, click and drag and yeah. …Get that just right so you have the nice black background. …
