Learn about breaking the grid with bleeds and crossovers in Adobe InDesign.
- [Instructor] In this chapter … I would like to look at some simple and effective ways … of breaking out of the grid, … and the first way is to allow the images to bleed … to the edges of the page. … I'll turn on my guides by pressing W. … Here I'm working with a five-column grid. … I'm going to bleed this image at the bottom, … and do the equivalent with the image at the top. … To select the image at the top, … I'm holding down the command or control key when I click, … because it's actually behind the text frame. … Notice that when I rescale this … the caption now moves down beneath the image. … And especially when you have images … that end in sky at the top of the frame, … allowing them to bleed … can give them a much more expansive feel. … In a similar vein, when we have a left-hand page … and a right-hand page next to each other … we can really tie together those two pages as a spread … by allowing the image to crossover. … I'll turn on my guides. … Here I'm working with a seven-column grid. …
