Adding Images and Text

Chapter Description

In this sample chapter from Adobe XD CC Classroom in a Book (2019 Release), author Brian Wood explains how to bring raster images into, and add text to, your app design.

Starting the lesson

In this lesson, you’ll bring raster images into, and add text to, your app design. To start, you’ll open a final lesson file to get an idea for what you will create in this lesson.

  1. Start Adobe XD CC, if it’s not already open.

  2. On macOS, choose File > Open From Your Computer. On Windows, click the menu icon (menu_icon.jpg) in the upper-left corner of the application window and choose Open From Your Computer.

    For either macOS or Windows, if the Home screen is showing with no files open, click Your Computer in the Home screen. Open the file named L4_end.xd, which is in the Lessons > Lesson04 folder that you copied onto your hard disk.

  1. If you see a message at the bottom of the application window about missing fonts, you can click the X on the right side of the message to close it.

  2. Press Command+0 (macOS) or Ctrl+0 (Windows) to see all of the design content. This file shows you what you will create by the end of the lesson.

  3. Leave the file open for reference, or choose File > Close (macOS) or click the X in the upper-right corner of the open window (Windows) to close the file.
