The Adobe Creative Suite links all of its products together, making it easy to convert files. To convert a Photoshop PSD file to InDesign's INDD format, you import the image into a new InDesign file. Once you've imported the file into InDesign, the Creative Suite lets you edit the original PSD file in Photoshop and it will automatically update the file in InDesign. Use Photoshop's many image editing features to make dazzling graphics and then import them into InDesign to prepare them for print.

Step 1

Click "File," then "New" and then select "Document" in Adobe InDesign. Click "OK."

Step 2

Click "File" and then "Place." Select your PSD file and click "OK." Your PSD file has now been inserted into InDesign.

Step 3

Click "File" and then "Save As." Choose a location for your file and type in a file name. Click "Save." Your document is now saved as an InDesign file.
