Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Cropping and scaling, part of Introducing InDesign.
- In this movie, I'll show you how to crop and scale…photographic images and other imported artwork…inside InDesign, and we'll be doing so using…a combination of the standard selection tool…up here at the top of the toolbox,…along with something called the content grabber.…I'm going to press shift page down to advance to page three…of my document, and then I'm going to click on this…photographic image down in the lower left corner,…and I'll press command plus, or control plus on a PC,…in order to zoom in on it.…
Now I want to be able to see the image in higher quality,…so I'll right-click on it, choose "Display performance"…and choose high quality display, and that way the…image will look just as smooth on screen…as it's going to look when we export or print the document.…Now notice the rectangular frame that surrounds the image.…It includes, among other things, eight white square handles.…So for example, we have handles in each one of the corners,…we've got handles on both sides,…and we have a handle at the top and the bottom as well.…
