Chapter 11. Pictures and Text > Pictures and text

Pictures and text

There are many ways to combine text and pictures in QuarkXPress. For example, you can place a picture behind a text box that has a transparent background. Or you can have text wrap around the perimeter of a picture box, or wrap partially or completely around the irregular contours of the picture itself.

QuarkXPress not only gives you control over how text wraps around a picture, it also lets you create editable clipping paths that control how much of a picture prints. If you have a picture with a white background, for example, you can tell the program not to print the background. A clipping path can even be created from an embedded path or alpha channel that was saved with a picture in another application.
