  1. Adobe InDesign CS5 – IllustratedUnit D:Working with Graphics

  2. Objectives • Upon completion of this unit, you should be able to: • Understand bitmap and vector graphics • Place a graphic into a frame • Work with the content indicator • Transform frame contents • Use the Links panel • Replace a linked image and embed a file • Add graphics to a library

  3. Understanding Bitmap and Vector Graphics • Bitmap graphic • Graphic that is made up of pixels • Tiny color squares arranged in a grid used to display graphics • Pixels can be seen when zooming • Examples: • Television screens • Scanned photographs • Photographs taken from a digital camera • Files created in an image-editing software program

  4. Understanding Bitmap and Vector Graphics • Vector graphic • Graphic that is made up of vectors • Straight or curved line segments connected by anchor points (small dots) • Created in drawing programs • Ideal format for illustrations and logos • Can be resized in page layouts without losing image quality • Can be manipulated in InDesign using the Pen tool and Direct Selection tool

  8. Placing a Graphic into a Frame • Graphics are placed into frames • Using any of the frame tools: • Rectangle, Ellipse, and Polygon tool • Placed using the Place command on the File menu • Upper-left corner of the graphic snaps to the upper-left corner of the frame and fills the remainder of the frame • If the frame is larger than the graphic, not all of the frame will be filled • If the graphic is larger than the frame, part of the graphic will not be seen

  9. Placing a Graphic into a Frame Figure D-4: Creating the first rectangle frame

  12. Working with the Content Indicator • Content indicator • Donut-shaped icon • Appears over a placed graphic when Selection tool is moved over the graphic • Allows you to move a graphic in a frame without moving the frame • Image can be dragged until it is cropped to your liking • Cropping: hiding part of the image without permanently removing it

  13. Working with the Content Indicator Figure D-7: Viewing the content indicator

  14. Working with the Content Indicator Figure D-8: Adjusting the view inside the frame

  15. Transforming Frame Contents • Control panel • Displays options for transforming frame contents • Examples: scale, rotate, center, or flip • There are also buttons for fitting the image to match the size of the frame and vice versa

  16. Transforming Frame Contents Table D-1: Fitting commands

  20. Using the Links Panel • When an image is placed in a frame a preview is displayed • Graphical representation of the original image file and not the file itself • Link is automatically established between the preview and actual image file • Linking images helps to keep file size manageable • Size of placed image files is not added to the InDesign file size

  21. Using the Links Panel Figure D-12: Viewing the second frame

  22. Using the Links Panel Figure D-13: Links panel

  23. Using the Links Panel Figure D-14: Links panel

  24. Using the Links Panel Table D-2: Link status

  25. Replacing a Linked Image and Embedding a File • To replace a placed image in InDesign: • Click the image on the Links panel • Click the Relink button on the Links panel • Choose a new file in the Relink dialog box • New image replaces the original image • Inherits any fitting commands and transformations that were made to it

  26. Replacing a Linked Image and Embedding a File • Embedding a file: • Makes it a permanent part of the file • No longer linked • Embedded files remain on the Links panel with an Embedded icon • Great way to protect a file from being changed, moved, or deleted

  27. Replacing a Linked Image and Embedding a File Figure D-15: Relink dialog box Figure D-16: Embedding the logo file

  28. Adding Graphics to a Library • Libraries • Strictly for storing often-used text, graphics, and pages for use in any InDesign document • Store all formatting applied to objects and text • InDesign files (with an .indl extension) that look and work like InDesign panels

  29. Adding Graphics to a Library Figure D-17: New Library dialog box
