Hi this is Gary with MacMost.This episode Lets look using images in iWork pages. So you probably know that you can bring images into your page documents but all the images have numerous ways to do that.Lets take a look, the few ways to bring the images into the pages document. One is you can click on the media button here and you can bring up audio, photos, movies and in photos you can find something in you iPhoto collection. You can simply drag and drop a image file from the finder into pages.What you have an image you can click on it and then drag it around the screen, you has to grab the corner into left and right, top and bottom to change its size. So you can see I can shrink it down, I grabbing any one of these. Notice that, its going to use the opposite end as the drag point, so the other way to drag it from here you can see the left side is kept steady , if I drag it from here the bottom-left corner is kept steady. If I hold the option key drag and drop you can do it by the center instead. Actually I can hold and release the option key while dragging opposite side over the center. To rotate an image simply hold the command key down while the one over the drag point here , so you can rotate around and rotate around the center all set is just hold the command key, hold option key down and then rotate around the opposite point which you dragging and I show you the rotations decrease around the screen.Next one is click on the inspector button and then go to the metric tab there, and you can set the size, set it exactly like this, you can turn off the Constraint propositions to towards something like that and also you can click on a original size to have a work back to the original.You can then go and change its position exactly rotate using exact angle of rotation and this is also where you would say flip an image horizontally or vertically. Now we going to use the inspector on special effects graphics tab instead, am going to do things over here is a border, a line inside a color and style for line. You can also choose the picture frame, you choose a models many different once here and also I should add a drop shadow change lots of properties in the drop shadow or you could also go to Reflections, you have to change the opacity of the entire image like a transparent. Inspector go to the wrap section and you can set text wrappers on the image we have it. There are lot of options here. Now you do a masking an image. In format go to mask selected, the rectangular area you can change that to only show the portion of an image. So we can set it on the face of an image around and I do zoom in and out on the image right there. If I click edit mask, it show the one portion of an image, now we can move the image around everywhere. Click on edit mask again now am actually adjusting the mask of an image . You can also mask with shape and choose any shape over here, and now we get the same basic option instead of rectangle we got oval and other way to do that is simply create the shape first using the shape command fear from the top, once you create a shape you can drag an image into it and you see we get the same edit mask, you can move it around, you know basically end up with the same thing you had doing it on other way.Cross a line on image using draw click or right click selecting align objects you can choose left generate and this point I have got an image here, all you see this part here. The entire image is saved inside the pages document, making the document perhaps pretty large nothing you can shrink the document control click and select the pop up will appear reduce image File size, what happen now is only the portion of an image you see is saved. So I don't have an option to go back and see surrounded area behind the lion. We should be careful in doing it . Under the inspector you can have the adjust image using this you can adjust the color of an image, so you can adjust the brightness and contrast.So you can send the document move it under the Mac to somebody else is just a link to the external file. Hope you like this images on pages, so until next time this is Gary with MacMost Now.
