The second rule of images in InDesign is to remember that InDesign places images within a Frame.Whether you prepare a frame before placing the image, or you place the image straight into the document (File > Place) InDesign will contain the image within a four-sided frame by default.You can choose from three Frame Shapes in the Tools panel (Window > Tools), Rectangle (F), Ellipse and … I need to place many images into a single text frame. Either you place an image in-line so that it moves with the text (Anchored Object): This is sometimes useful, especially with icons and other small graphics. Within InDesign, you can keep an object always in the right position by creating an anchored object. In InDesign, I double-click in the text box where I want to insert the image, go to File > Place, get the image, and press Open. First, with the Direct Selection tool (the white arrow), select the image and copy it to the clipboard (Edit > Copy). Usually InDesign inserts the image at the blinking cursor within the text box, but sometimes what happens is that no image appears inserted and everything after that disappears. Choose File > Place to place a graphic (or multiple graphics) in your document. Place your text, and choose your typeface and font size. Attach the image to the text. InDesign will create a frame with the image placed inside it sized proportionally to fill the frame. Remember that a big chunk of the text is going to be displaced by the image sitting in the middle of the frame. I know that you can place as many images at a time as you like, but I can't figure out a way to place them inside a text frame.The only way I can put images in the text frame is one-at-a-time by placing an image outside the text frame and cut-pasting one-by-one into the text frame.

In case of an image, create the group as we’ve seen above, and then anchor the object. I am trying to find a way to place an image inside of a text frame and somehow lock it so that when the text moves, the image moves with it. If you want all the text in the frame to be filled with the image, select the frame with the Selection tool and choose Type > Create Outlines. Each person will have their own photo besides their entry, but as I add information for each person I need the photo to follow the text … To start, create some type by selecting the Text Tool.
