Join Michael Murphy for an in-depth discussion in this video Dynamically linking print and web images, part of InDesign CS6: HTML.
In the last movie we looked at how the pasteboard can be used as…a staging area for alternate web appropriate…versions of the images in your print layout.…And then selectively exported for use in your HTML.…And we did that by creating an alternate frame here on the pasteboard.…Copying this main image from the print layout and…pasting it into that frame, cropping it accordingly and…then adding that to the articles panel along with our text content.…
Now, I'm a working designer myself, same as…many of you out there watching this course.…And I realize that this method of using the…paste board to aggregate and manage copies of the images…in your print layout could become a problem as…things change, because you have this copy on this pasteboard.…If you swap out that image on the print layout when you're busy,…it may not be something that you get around to maintaining regularly.…There is a way that InDesign can help you with this,…using the new content conveyor and content placer tools in CS6.…
