Lesson 6. Adventure newsletter > Placing art on page 1

Placing art on page 1

For this project, we have provided all of the art that you need, including the drop caps. Some—but not all—of the elements have been saved in a library. Several of the elements in the library were created in PageMaker itself and do not exist as separate files. The largest graphics are not included in the library, in order to conserve disk space.

  1. On page 1, choose Window > Plug-in Palettes > Show Library. In the Library palette, choose Open Library from the palette menu. Navigate to the 06Project folder, and double-click 06Lib.pml. You should see one or two thumbnails, each with a title underneath. If you don't see both images and titles, choose Display Both from the palette menu. The masthead items at the top of page 1 were created in PageMaker and added to the library as AT Logo-Heading.

    Note

    Items stored in the Library palette don't snap to guides or the grid as you drag them from the Library palette to the layout, nor do they display a preview until you release the mouse. Therefore, throughout this lesson you will move Library palette items onto the layout, let go, and then drag them precisely to their final positions.


  2. If necessary, scroll the Library palette until you see AT Logo-Heading. Drag AT Logo-Heading out of the Library palette, but don't let go yet. As you drag, the loaded graphic icon indicates where the top left corner of the graphic will be when you release the mouse button. Position the top left of the loaded graphic icon near the top left corner of the page margin, and then release the mouse button.

  3. Press and hold the mouse button on the masthead until you see the preview image for the masthead, then drag it into its final position so that the left edge snaps to the left page margin and the top of the Volume 23 text characters are aligned with the top page margin, as shown below.

    The next element is the large duotone photograph intended for the top half of page 1.

  4. Drag LeapDuo from the Library palette to the layout, position the loaded graphic icon along the left page margin and under the masthead, and then release the mouse button.Then drag the photograph so that the left side snaps to the left margin and the top snaps to the guide at 25p6 picas (you can check the Control palette for the location ofthe top edge as you drag, if you make sure any of the top reference points are selected in the Proxy icon).
