Adobe InDesign makes it easy to enhance your document with photographs and artwork imported from Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and other graphics applications. If these imported graphics change, InDesign can notify you that a newer version of a graphic is available. You can update or replace imported graphics at any time.
In this lesson, you’ll work on a three-panel folding brochure for a CD by importing, manipulating, and managing graphics from Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator. The insert is designed so that after printing and folding, it fits into a CD case.
This lesson includes steps that you can perform using Photoshop if you have it installed on your computer.
To ensure that the preferences and default settings of your InDesign program match those used in this lesson, move the InDesign Defaults file to a different folder following the procedure in “Saving and restoring the InDesign Defaults file” on pages 4–5.
Start InDesign. Choose File > Open, and open the 11_Start.indd file in the Lesson11 folder, located inside the Lessons folder within the InDesignCIB folder on your hard drive. A message appears saying that the document contains links to sources that have been modified.
Click Don’t Update Links. You will fix the modified links later in the lesson.
If necessary, close the Links panel so that it doesn’t obscure your view of the page. The Links panel opens automatically whenever you open an InDesign document that contains missing or modified links.
To ensure that the panels and menu commands match those used in this lesson, choose Window > Workspace > [Advanced], and then choose Window > Workspace > Reset Advanced.
To see what the finished document looks like, open the 11_End.indd file in the same folder. If you prefer, you can leave the document open as you work to act as a guide. If you leave it open, choose 11_Start.indd from the Window menu or click the 11_Start.indd document tab to return to that document.
Choose File > Save As, rename the file 11_cdinsert.indd, and save it in the Lesson11 folder.
