Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Extracting embedded art from a Word file, part of Using Word and InDesign Together.
Isn't this a lovely work of art? (LAUGH).…I had a lot of fun putting this together. This Word file may look a little familiar…because I talked about this a couple of chapters ago in an earlier video in this…title about working with embedded images. Though I have gussied it up a bit with a…few more things. What we have in here is we have a piece of…clip art because Word has a pretty robust clip art collection.…And I made the chicken nice and fat. He was actually skinnier.…I added a little balloon for him to talk to.…I just add one of these shapes here, I inserted one of these call outs and then…it automatically puts a little text thing inside, so you can write down what you…want to say. And I love this little yellow diamond…here, so we can point it at the chicken. Why doesn't InDesign have this?…This is wonderful! We have more clip art, this is an EPS graphic.…
