Chapter 9. Pictures > Importing Pictures into QuarkXPress

Importing Pictures into QuarkXPress

Now that we know the types of pictures we'll be dealing with, let's look at how we'll deal with them. As I mentioned, the first step in importing a graphic from another application is to create a picture box within your QuarkXPress document. This is covered in Chapter 3, Tools of the Trade, in the discussion of rectangles, ovals, and polygons. When you have an empty picture box on your page, you can see an “X” in the middle of it. At this point you're ready to bring a picture into the box.

Note that I'm bringing a picture into the box, rather than replacing the box or even “merging” the two together. The picture box is one entity and the picture is another. You might think of the box as being a window frame through which you see the picture. You can manipulate the picture box, or the picture, or both.
