    How to knock out the shape of a placed object


      This is a montage of approximately 250 small images in ID CS5. Each photo is a separate object. I would like to knock out the shape of the dog in silhouette to reveal the background layer, which is underneath the small images and can't be seen in this picture. Then I would like to add a drop shadow to give the background layer some depth.


      I know how to do this with either text or a shape created in InDesign, but I'm having trouble getting it to work for a placed object. I've tried using the silhouette as an EPS, AI and PSD but can't figure it out.
