Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Cropping and scaling, part of InDesign CS4 Getting Started.
In this exercise I am going to show you how to crop and scale graphics in…InDesign. I am working in a document called Imported images.indd found inside…the Exercise Files folder. Notice that I am zoomed in on this photograph of…this large screen monitor. Let's say I want to make the monitor bigger so it…fills up more space.…If I click on the graphic in order to select it then I see a series of eight…handles in the corners and on the sides of this image frame. To scale the…graphic you press the Ctrl key on the PC or the Command key on the Mac and you…drag one of these handles.…
I am just going to go ahead and scale the graphic taller or like so, and that…ends up stretching the image, so I will press Ctrl+Z or Command+Z on the Mac to…Undo that modification.…Let's say that we want to scale the image proportionally, you would do that by…pressing both Ctrl and Shift or Command and Shift on the Mac and then dragging…one of the corner handles and that makes the image considerably bigger in this case.…
