    Thanks Corey!
    That was a great tutorial from Dave Cross.

  • Brent says:

    Dave Cross is my hero.

  • Cheryl Johnson says:

    All very new to me so I followed along with Dave but each time I tried to make the contact sheet my template design was applied to the first sheet only – what am I doing wrong ??

  • dave cross says:

    For the contact sheet to work with multiple pages you must place any design, logo etc on the Master Page. If you create a facing page document, there will be 2 master pages and you must put your “stuff” on both the left and right hand master page (that’s why I usually don’t use facing pages)

  • Matt says:

    very cool

  • Jody says:

    Great information – thank you! Dave’s seminars are wonderful – see him LIVE whenever he come’s near your town!

  • Shane says:

    Very good. You know what you’re doing, Dave.

  • Darrell says:

    Hey Dave – I came across this tutorial today, and feel very priviledged to see one of my designs (self portrait) in your training video – the image on my istock portfolio – fraserd

  • Scott says:

    Dave, I have Adobe Photoshop cs3 extended and Indesign cs3 installed on my machine. However in Bridge I don’t have an option listed to make an Idesign contact sheet. It’s like Bridge doesn’t know Indesign exist.
    Hope you can help me with this.

  • michaela says:

    scott i am the same problem? did you find an anwser?

  • Kirsten says:

    Dave That was awesome, but do you know of a way to take an InDesign document with placed images already placed and have captions added? We used to use a plugin called Label it to accomplish this, but I was hoping with CS4, something similar is out there.

    Thanks again for the video!

  • Ken says:

    Nice tutorial. Very clearly thought out and presented.

  • Sharron says:

    well I did not get far…when I go to Bridge, Tools, InDesign…. InDesign is not there as an opiton…. what do I do know.
    I tried to also do the drag and drop of images into Indesign – use the arrow keys to create placeholders (?) but it would only respond to the side arrow key now he down arrow key. I have wasted half my day on this today!
