Learn about how to place and transform images into a Photoshop file.
- [Instructor] So here we are back in our main file…and what we're going to do in this exercise…is we're going to bring in a couple of other images…as assets.…You can bring in other things…such as Illustrator files and so on,…there's quite a few things you can bring in actually…but we're just going to stick to images for this.…Let's make our way up to the file menu…and you'll see there are two place commands here.…Place embedded which goes to another file…and brings all of it's data into this file…or place linked which we'll be using this time around…which actually creates just an additional…kind of placed copy in here.…
And we can do things to change it's appearance…but we can't change any of the actual pixels.…And it's a very very clever way to work…if you're trying to keep maximum edit ability.…So we'll chose that command…and make our way out to…the exercise files for chapter five…and bring in blueMountains.psd.…If we double click on that…that will come in like so.…It has a transformation frame around it…and of course we'd want to keep it's proportions,…
