Chapter 28. Importing Graphics > Placing Graphics

Placing Graphics

As in XPress or PageMaker, you can build placeholder frames on your page and import graphics into these frames. In QuarkXPress, you would use the Get Picture command to import a graphic. Instead, InDesign borrows from PageMaker: To select an image, choose Place from the File menu (or press Command-D/Ctrl-D).

As we discuss in Chapter 6, any frame may contain any content—you do not need to build frames specifically for text or pictures. If you don’t want to replace the currently-selected picture or text, or anchor the image in your text, then turn off the Replace Selected Item option in the Place dialog box. This way, InDesign ignores the selected item and simply loads the Place gun. (If you forget and the image does replace a frame’s content, you can press Command-Z/Ctrl-Z to undo and reload the Place gun.)
