    Cropping photos at an angle within InDesign?

    barking sands

      Is this possible?

       

      I have a bunch of product shots. I want to bring them into InDesign, rotate them until I like the angle, and then crop them (mask out the background) to fit inside a squared-up rectangle border.

       

      I know I can do this all individually in Photoshop but it's better to do this while I am designing the layout. I don't want to have to keep going back into PS to tweak the angles.

       

      I tried to do it with Pathfinder but it kept saying there was nothing there to mask.

       

      Using CS4.
