Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing images, part of Learning InDesign (2011).
In this exercise, I am going to show you how to import image files into…InDesign, and these might include photographic images or pieces of vector-…based line art or logos.…They all work the same.…I'll also introduce you to the Links panel, and we'll wrap things up with this…great trick that allows you to place multiple images at the same time.…I am working inside a document called Open space.indd.…It's found inside the exercise_files folder, and it includes a couple of open…spaces here that are ready and waiting to accept artwork.…
Now, I will go up to the File menu and choose that same command that you …used to import a word processing document, the Place command.…Note that it has that keyboard shortcut of Ctrl+D, or Cmd+D on the Mac.…You'll see a variation on that shortcut that allows you to bring up the Links…panel in just a few minutes.…I'll go ahead and choose Place.…Navigate your way to the exercise_ files folder and go ahead and select both…those files that begin with the word Art.…So click on Art-calibrate.psd, Shift+Click on Art-monitor.psd.…
