"A meme (/ˈmiːm/ MEEM) is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture"."
Tell me, how could I possibly create an idea or a behavior or a style in InDesign?
Since I don't use that word and am not familiar with it, I suspect you have another meaning, but what is it?
God, I hate those things. The dumbing down of America! I see enough of them on Facebook.
There's probably a free app for that on your phone!
I agree completely. ( have a couple of twenty-something children, so I know more about some of this stuff than I'd like to.)
What I showed was just a screen shot of a portion of the first page of a Google image search for Meme.

- File > New choose 4" x 6" for the paper size.
- File > Place to import the background image.
- Use the Selection tool to resize the frame to match the paper size.
- With the frame still selected, chose either Object > Fitting > Fill Frame Proportionately or Object > Fitting > Fit Content Proportionally. (Depending on the aspect ratio of the image, one will work better than the other).
- Draw a frame with the Type tool.
- Add the caption text, highlight it and format it with options from the Control panel at the top of the page.
- Repeat if there is a second caption.
- To add it to Facebook or Instagram, use File > Export and pick PNG or JPG.
Thank you - the step I missed was the Free Transform Tool. I appreciate you taking the time to actually answer this! We do Call to Action Memes designed to change behaviors but I'm pretty sure the rest of the folks who commented here just wanted to judge. Nasty business, judging.
I'm not judging you personally. I just don't like them. But "different strokes for different folks."
Ad line suggestion: "Adobe InDesign. The industry-leading page design and layout toolset. [...] New! Now supports Easy Memes!"
It will get the teens. A whole new marketing group! The marketing people will be happy.
