I am very much a novice when it comes to these programs, but at my job, I am tasked with using them fairly often now. What I am wondering is, is there a way to make an edit in one and have it appear in the other program? For our current project, we are doing a fundraiser program. We have placed an image from PS into ID, but there are edits needed. So is there a way to make the edits in PS, but have them also show up in ID? Can these two programs talk to each other?

If you're using CS 5 or 5.5, there is Bridge for moving things around Adobe software. Bridge is part of all the Suites. Is that what you're looking for?

Use adobe bridge. or if you have the file open in both sw you can get them to update by bringing the program active and accepting. It will notice the the filesystem has changed and will ask you to update.

Use bridge,if you don't know how, the manual way is to edit in one program save, and then export them, and open them in the other program.

Just make the edits in Photoshop then use 'place' in InDesign?

I thought you could link to the psd directly, so if a change was made to the source psd, it would appear in you Indesign file. I know you can adjust layer visibility in indesign which make me think it could be a copy. I learned quark express in school, and that program would link to external image files, so I assume Indesign does too. It's like all other desktop publishing applications. Being an Adobe product, I'm sure it can read linked psds.

Ok, I need more explanation please. I took a look at Bridge and have no idea what to do with it. Looks very complex. Using "place" does work in ID, but it takes time. I'd like to just have the edits move from one program to the other, if it can be done. One poster talked about exporting. Could I get info on that?

Sorry, responded to everyone in one message

Forgot about this thread! I solved my problem this way:

To edit the image from InDesign, right-click on the placed image and choose to 'edit original'. It will open in Photoshop. When you save or close the image in Photoshop, it will automatically update in the InDesign document.


Thanks to all who replied.
