Chapter 61. Importing Graphics > Placing Graphics

Placing Graphics

As in QuarkXPress, you can build placeholder frames on your page and import graphics into these frames. Instead of the Get Picture command in QuarkXPress, you use the Place command from the File menu (or press Command-D/Ctrl-D) to select an image to import into the frame. (We discuss the file formats which InDesign supports in the next chapter.)

Flexible Frames

As we discuss in Chapter 10, any frame may contain any content—you do not need to build frames specifically for text or pictures. In fact, you have to be careful here: If you select a text frame with the Selection tool when you place a graphic, InDesign deletes the text and replaces it with the picture! As we discuss in Chapter 69, if you place a graphic when you have an active text insertion point (with the Type tool), the graphic becomes anchored in the text as an inline object.
