Chapter SixWorking with Graphics

In addition to using InDesign’s drawing tools to create graphic elements within InDesign, you can also import graphics created with other programs, such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. After you import a graphic into an InDesign layout, you can modify it in many ways, including cropping, scaling, rotating, and flipping it horizontally or vertically. You can also use InDesign to apply see-through effects to imported graphics that make them appear translucent.

In this chapter we begin by explaining how to import graphics into InDesign layouts, and then tell you how to use some of InDesign’s most powerful features to modify imported graphics and manage graphic files.
