Here is my situation : I am preparing a coin catalogue, thus I am dealing with hundreds of pictures.
Lets say I have a cell within a huge table, sized 2x5cm and a picture sized 6x8cm . Is there a way to autofit this picture into this cell proportionally ?
The fitting commands and the Autofit feature work with graphic frames not with table cells.
I'd set up a Photoshop action to resize the pictures in Photoshop to be exactly the right size for the table cell before you place them. Make sure you take into account the inset on each side of the cell (testing this ahead) so they'll work correctly.
I already created an action, but I want to simplify my job.
For more automation, you or someone else could create an InDesign script. You might inquire in the InDesign scripting forum.
