Now we want to jump back to InDesign for a second, so on the Mac hold down the Command key, on the PC hold down the Alt key and press the Tab until you find the application you wish to jump to. So I am going to go all the way across until I see InDesign, then let go the Command key and that will take me straight back to where we were.
Now we are on the right page, the right layer, we have the right image frame selected, we now want to bring that image in and we are not going to use the Place dialog like we did with the Illustrator logo on the front page. We are going to use a nice feature of Bridge called the Compact Bridge View.
So you can either click the Bridge icon up here again in the Control Palette or again, use the same Command+Tab function to take you back to Bridge in the Application list and then let's back up out with the Raw folder, go back into the Photoshop files and there inside that folder you should see the Judge Center.psd, the file that we just saved out of Photoshop.
Now we want to get that straight into InDesign, the fastest and the most effective way possible and this is it. Hold down the Command key or the Ctrl key on the PC and hit Return and that will take us into Compact Bridge which scales it down, shows us the application behind and it could be Illustrator, Photoshop, GoLite, it doesn't matter, we just have access to it very easily. Here is the image frame, here is the image. What we have got to do is click and drag that now straight across into that frame in InDesign and there it is. Perfectly positioned, perfectly sized and perfectly centered on the page because we prepared it that way inside Photoshop.
Now I am just going to hide Bridge for a second. I want to point out something that's changed here in CS2 very different to CS1 and that is the way the images are displayed in terms of color. Just make sure you have nothing selected and then hit the W key in InDesign to turn on the Preview mode and that gets rid of all the margins, guides, frame edges, anything that we wouldn't see when we print the final document, just gives this image a bit more clarity.
What I want you to do is jump back across into Photoshop again and this time hit the F key twice to take us out of that Full Screen mode, just pull this image down so we can see one above the other and what you should be noticing is that the colors of the two of them are identical and this is a wonderful thing.
In the previous version of CS this wasn't something that happened automatically. Photoshop always displayed the right color because it had its Color Settings tuned on. But in InDesign and Illustrator you have to remember to go in and change the Color Settings so that any image you placed in looks exactly the same as it did in the program that it came from, and Photoshop was the worse.
A number of times the people have placed a file into InDesign and asked me, why does the color change when I drop it into InDesign? It's not changing, it's purely the way that InDesign views it. But now this is all changed in CS2 and it's actually taking care of it inside of Bridge.
What I am going to do is jump across to Bridge now and hit the same keyboard shortcut, Command+Return or Ctrl+Return on the PC to go back to Full Bridge mode and then come up to the Edit menu and you will see towards the bottom there is a function called Creative Suite Color Settings.
You can see there is a default preset North America General Purpose 2 that's using a series of functions to make sure the color is accurate throughout all programs but this is the most important, Synchronized. Your Creative Suite applications are synchronized using the same Color Settings, this is the big one for consistent color management.
So color that you see on screen and color that you print out is guaranteed to be consistent across all the CS2 applications. So you don't have to change anything. The great thing is, is that it is being taken care off for you. So I just wanted to point that out. Just go ahead and Cancel that and now jump back across the Photoshop very temporarily because what we want to do is close down the Judge Center file that we have open and now go back across into InDesign because we want to do one more thing with this file.
