Placing Images

You have several options for importing graphics into InDesign. Items can be copied and pasted from other applications, such as Photoshop or Illustrator, or they can be placed in your document using the File, Place command.

You should decide between placing and pasting graphics based on several factors. When you paste graphics, you embed a full copy of the graphic in your file and have more options for editing the graphic. Embedded graphics make your file larger, however. Placing graphics often means you have to make your choices of how the graphic should display in the Place dialog, and you will not have many editing options after it's on the InDesign page. Linked files are low-resolution proxies placed in your document; linking graphics makes your file sizes smaller.
