Chapter 7. IMPORTED GRAPHICS > Setting Image Import Options

Setting Image Import Options

Just like the text import options, choices arise when you place graphics. Different types of graphics have different import options. If your image is a pixel-based image, such as a TIFF file, you have certain options. (See the sidebar "Pixels or Vectors" .)

To import pixel images:

1.
Choose File > Place to open the Place dialog box.

2.
Check Import Options.

3.
Select a pixel-based image and then click Choose. This opens the Image Import Options dialog box for pixel-based images .

Figure 7.9. The Image Import Options dialog box lets you set the import options for pixel-based graphics.


4.
Choose Image Settings from the pop-up list.

  • Set an amount in the Proxy Image Resolution field. The higher the value, the greater the detail that is displayed onscreen .

    Figure 7.10. The effect of setting different proxy image resolutions.

  • If the image has a clipping path from a program such as Adobe Photoshop, you can choose Create Frame From Clipping Path. (See the sidebar "Working with Clipping paths" on the next page.) This converts the path into a frame you can manipulate in InDesign .

    Figure 7.11. An embedded clipping path can he converted into a frame, which you can manipulate within InDesign.

5.
Click OK to place the image.
