Don't do that. Prepare the image in Photoshop, then Place the file in InDesign. That's how it's designed to work.
Thanks for input! I do "place" pictures in my document, but I have never done that with the data for those pics. The file I get the data from is a PDF of labels. I rect. marquee the label I need, then I have ctrl-C copied in PS the label, click on the InD doc and then ctrl-V paste the label where I want it.
Any suggestion on how to "cut" the labels of the pdf in PS so I can place them individually (like a picture) in InD?
Self taught. Any suggestions welcome.
Probably the easiest thing for you to do is draw your selection, copy then ctrl+n in Photoshop to create a new document which should be preset to the size of your selection you just made and paste. Ctrl+s and give it a name. Then in InDesign, ctrl+d to place.
Are you able to make these bar-codes?
You could type out your UPC's or product numbers, assign a class and change the font to a bar-code font.
All of your bar-codes would then be consistent and easily editable.
