Placing a Picture using InDesign


Placing a picture in InDesign

It can be easy to run into difficulties when placing a picture in InDesign. The trouble isn't with the actual placing of the picture. That's simply done by click File - Place. The tricky bit comes when you have to manipulate the picture, change the size of the frame in relation to the picture, or maybe it's simply a case of getting the picture to fit the frame..

Anyway, this short video will show you how to place a picture in Adobe InDesign. It will also show how you can work with the picture a little so that you can try to get InDesign to do your bidding, rather than the other way round.
