How To Crop Images Inside Of Text In Adobe InDesign CC

Hi there in this video, we're going to do some advanced cropping where we stick it inside stars and we stick it inside custom shapes that we make and awesomely we stick it images inside of text, let's go and do that now in in design. Okay, so let's do the first one, doing some custom shapes. So we've pasted into a circle before, in case you missed that one, It's really easy. Pick a shape. I'm gonna use the polygon tool and I click on it once I'm gonna double click it and I'm gonna pick five sides with a stone set of 52. Give me kind of that traditional star shape holding shift while I'm dragging, grab an image, Click off in the background file place, find any image. I'm finding one from 03 magazine. Okay, I'm bringing this guy remember just to paste it over the top of where you want it to go. Okay, go to edit, Cut, select it and go to edit paste in two. That's the magic trick. Now, this is what we did earlier inside of a circle. I'm going to select it and delete it because what I'd lik...

e to do is a bit more of a custom shape. So I'm gonna go back to the ellipse tool, grab lips, I'm going to draw out a circle and I'm going to grab the pen tool. The pen tool has a couple of options. Okay, I was gonna use the top pen tool and I'm going to click once on the edge and you'll see the pen tool turns into like a little plus once there click ones about there and then one in between. Why? Because I want to grow my white arrow, I'm gonna drag that one in between out now. Sometimes it can be a little hard to select. You gotta click off. I mean Harvard kind of roughly where it was and click on just that one point, it's even harder now because there's lots of dots, but that's what I want to do. I want to pull out like a little blob. Next thing I want to do is go back to my pen tool, there's an option here says convert direction right now. It's a bit of a blob, it's got around it in, I'm just going to click on it once and that will clear off those little round of it's now it's nice and pointed. Okay, so you can make any show that just made like a little speech bubble. That's what I want to do. Bring in another image running out of images to grab. I'm gonna grab one from our spring flyer, modern kitchen with white and yellow colors. Remember drag it so it's just above where you needed to go cut it, edit, cut and then edit paste into Okay, so it doesn't really matter what kind of shape it is, you can draw an illustrator as well and copy and paste it in if you're more comfortable drawing in there, it could be some of the options from our CC marketplace. Okay, so assets market download an icon and paste it into that. You might have to un group at first. Now let's get into the thing you've been waiting for. The pasting inside text and this totally reminds me of Baywatch. For some reason, everybody remembers Baywatch, not the new one. The old one with Mr Hasselhoff. Okay, so I got a text box. I'm gonna write Baywatch for no good reason. Do you remember like there was like waves in the background? So what I'm gonna do is make a nice big font. I'm using command shift period to make it bigger. You can use control shift period on a pc. I'm going to pick a nice, there's roboto slab in here. Roboto slab bolt too big. Okay, slab is too big a chunk you want. Okay, what I'd like to do is a paste an image inside of that. Now for this to work, we need to do something called outlining the text now because we outline it, we can't then adjust it later on. So often it can be handy just to duplicate it. So we've got a backup version with this selected. Let's go to type, there's one in here. It says, create outlines and basically it turns it into shapes that look like text, you can't use the type tool on anymore. But what we can do is we can bring in an image, let's go to exercise files, lets bring in one of the ones from drawing. I'm not even sure which one I'm gonna pick, I'll pick this one. Okay, so Image four. And because I had it selected and because I had this option turned on replace selected item and just put it in. If it didn't work, you can just draw it over the top. Like we did everything else. Okay, Get it in the right spot, cut it, then select it and go to the edit paste into baywatch to get to it. Alright, that's gonna be it for some advance cropping onto the next video.
