Using Images In Pages

After you import an image into Pages, there are many ways to adjust it. You can play with the image settings to get it to look just right. You can crop and mask it. You can also choose how you want text to wrap around the image.

    Is there any way to choose “None” for Wrap for the whole document? I want text boxes and screen shots for lessons that I used to do in Page Layout. It seems like Pages 5 is all Word Processing and I have to turn off wrap for each item I add.

      If you want to do page layout, go to the “Setup” portion of the sidebar (not Format) and turn off Document Body. Then add text boxes and images as needed.

    Can images in pages be saved as jpeg or pdf files instead of pages document?

      6 years ago

      Saving as a JPG doesn’t make sense — Pages creates documents, not images. But you can certainly export as PDF.

    I have placed my image fine but I cannot figure out how to get my text to flow from one text box to another. I can get to flow around the picture just fine. I have updated to Pages 5.0.1

      You can link text boxes in this first version of the new Pages. Perhaps that will be in an update they will add that back. Until then, continue to use the old Pages if you need that functionality.

    Is there still a way to crop an image with a geometric shape?

      6 years ago

      Yes. Create a shape from the toolbar (circle, star, whatever) and then just drag and drop an image into it.

    I would like to mask one of my pictures with a round shape (or have a round border. Previous versions of Pages gave me that option, but now I cannot figure out how to do it. All the options I have are just with rectangles… Any ideas?
    Thanks in advance.

      Click on the Shape button in the toolbar at the top. Add a circle. Drag and drop an image into it.
