Now, one thing I pointed out a little while ago was the fact that all the images we are currently looking at are low resolution. It is no more apparent than here inside this small section, everything is very, very tiny and again if I jumped back across to the Pages Palette and go across to page one, by going to there, we can see that this illustrator files are looking very, very rough.
Well, just to prove that it is all because of the preview we are looking at, we just go up to the View menu here. You can see that there is a display performance submenu and you can see we are currently, “Typical”. Let us go down and choose “High Quality Display”. There will be slight pores while InDesign loads up, the original Photoshop files and everything else, but you will see almost immediately, the Illustrator graphics. Now, if I zoom out on those, beautifully shot no matter how big we go, it rendered up perfect quality, just fit inside the window here. Let us maybe, zoom down onto the museum image here at the bottom. You can see that looks very, very nice as well. You see a beautiful high resolution.
Just to prove the point, I am going to jump back across the page to here and you can see this one full high resolution images being placed into the cells of a table. So it is very, very cool to work in that view to make sure that everything is exactly as it wants it to be.
Now, I am just going to fit this in Window because we are almost ready to export this. .But remember I did say, we are going to do three languages on this because we want to send this maybe to the client for the invitation to just show them where the French and say the German languages would go in the same file.
So, what I am going to do is going back up to the Layers Palette for a second and then go ahead and turn off the English Layer for a minute, go ahead and turn on the “Type German Layer”, so we are just going to bring in the German type. Everything else stays where it is. I just got rid of the English text. Once again, there is a text frame here all ready for the German, so I am going to double click once more to select that text frame with the Text tool, command D or CTRL D to bring up place.
This time, choose the German copy, click “Open”, select tool of that type, go ahead and choose the style sheet that says “Invite body copy GE” that will format it all to the German type. We can now, quickly come back up to the Layers Palette, turn off the German Layer, turn on the French one. We can click here now to select the French text frame because we all ready have our text tool because of what we just did in the German text frame, once again go to Place and this time bring in the French copy, click open. That will flow in very happily, select all and then reformat that style using “Invite body copy FR” for the French style.
Once again, that fits out very, very happily. If I go ahead and turn off the French layer now, we can come back to check if the German is still there. Perfect. Come back and check the English is still there. We are going to export it with the English visible, but the important thing is here, that we have two layers that are turned off but they will become part of the PDF. So, all the layers here will be visible. The person who sees the PDF at the other end can switch between the three languages and double check.
