Backward Compatibility in Adobe InDesign CS2 allows InDesign CS users to open Adobe InDesign CS2 documents by first exporting them to the InDesign Interchange (INX) format. To open INX files from InDesign CS , you also need to first install an update for InDesign CS called Adobe InDesign CS 3.0.1 April 2005 (CS2 Compatibility Update). To determine if you have the update installed, see document 331403 , "Determine if you have installed InDesign or InCopy CS 3.0.1 April 2005 update."

Content that you create using functionality that is specific to InDesign CS2 might be modified or omitted when you open the file in InDesign CS. For example, footnotes and object styles (new features in InDesign CS2) drop out. However, the INX file preserves attributes applied to page objects using the Object Style palette attributes when possible.

To export an InDesign Interchange file from InDesign CS2:


1. Open or create a file in InDesign CS2.

2. Choose File > Export.

3. In the Export dialog box, select InDesign Interchange from the File Type menu (Windows) or Formats menu (Mac OS).

4. Click Save.

For all of its life, Illustrator has always used Botticelli's Venus as its symbol. Then in the CS and CS2 versions, she went away, replaced by flowers. If you miss the old look, you can get a glimpse of the past by holding down the Option key ( PC: Alt key ) and choosing About Illustrator. In OSX on the Mac, it's under the illustrator menu, in Windows XP, it's under the Help menu.

There are number of ways in which you can use drag and drop to get content in and out of Indesign. Here are my favourites:

If you ever get a lot of content for a layout delivered to you in a folder full of images,logos, text files, etc., there's a fast and easy way to get the files into InDesign that will enable you to avoid placing them one by one.

Any file type that you can import into InDesign using the Place command can also be dragged and dropped into InDesign from the desktop.



What’s great about this feature is that you can drag and drop multiple files into
InDesign in a single step. You can drag and drop all the text and/or graphic files in a project folder into your InDesign layout in one step—and that could be a big time
saver if you’re looking at importing dozens of files.

When you drag and drop from the desktop, you’ll see the icons of the files you’re placing as your cursor moves into InDesign.

1.
Arrange your InDesign windows so that you can see the desktop folder from which you want to drag and drop the files.



2.
Select all the files you want to import,and then drag them into an InDesign document window. You’ll see ghosted versions of the icons. InDesign will cascade all the imported files when you release the mouse button, and it will use the position of your cursor as the starting point for the distribution of the placed files.


Here you see the files I dragged into my layout.




cool eh?

Photo border... Another creative creation using Photoshop

tutorial by: jedimaster
www.muzamli.com


1. THE FIRST STEP



Select an image or photo. I'm using the image above (Photo A) which size is 327 x 260 pixels. Open a new document (Photo B). Size: 364 x 287 pixels with resolution of 72dpi and in RGB color mode.

Then, select Photo A and drag the image to the new document using Move Tools (V)



You can see that I had leave some space around the image for the Photo Border.


2. STROKE EFFECT




On Photoshop Menu Bar, select Layer > Layer Style > Blending Options > Stroke.

Use the setting below:

Structure:-
-Size : 10 pixels (make it thick)
-Position : Inside (Border will be construct inside the image area)
-Blend Mode : Normal
-Opacity : 100%

Fill Type: Color
-Color : White (or any other color)



3. Drop Shadow Effect



Again, on Photoshop Menu Bar, select Layer > Layer Style > Blending Options > Drop Shadow.

Use the setting below for Drop Shadow:

Structure:-
-Blend Mode : Multiply (Black)
-Opacity : 75%
-Angle : 90 degrees (uncheck Use Global Light first)
-Distance : 3px
-Spread : 0%
-Size : 10px

Quality;- Default setting




4. Background

If the Shadow effect is not visible enough, try to fill in color to the background. I'm using white as my background color.
(Note: Fill in color on the Background Layer! Not on the image layer). (See the result below)



5. Final Touch Up



You can use your own creativity to make it look more interesting. For example, make it looks like a pile of photos as shown above.

Simple isn't it. That's all for now. :-)
