Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing inline images and photos, part of Using Word and InDesign Together.
InDesign is usually pretty smart about importing all of the kind of crazy…graphics that a Word user might automatically flow in.…And there are always ongoing debates among designers themselves.…Would you rather, if a Word document has a lot of pictures.…Would you rather the Word user insert them where they should be.…Or give you all of the images on the side and then you place them where you want…them to go? And actually you can have your cake and…eat it too. Let me show you how.…We're looking at a Word document with a bunch of different images in it.…
I've scrolled down to page 2 just to show you the easiest kind of image to deal with.…And this is just an external JPEG or PDF or EPS graphic that the Word user has…brought in by going to the Insert command. Wherever the Insert command may be in…their version of Word here in Word 2011 on the Macintosh, it's right here.…And we went to actually, Insert File, which will insert any file inside here.…Or you could go to Photo and choose Picture From File.…
Then it comes in and you can scale it. However you'd like and center it and so on.…
