how to create popouts  
QUESTION: Hi,

How can I create a popout in Indesign.

Please illustrate for me the answer for clarification

Thank you.

ANSWER: Hi Ndugs,

Thank you for your question.

There are a few techniques to make that popout in indesign.
The video you have attached was showing the use of an image that had an embedded path in it, so you would need to path the image in something like photoshop first.

One way to do it would be to path the image. Then drag it into indesign and align it ontop of the boxes and border to get the effect you want. This would also help stop any printing issues.

Another way can be seen here - http://www.scribd.com/doc/4163725/Create-InDesign-PopOut-Effect

Another method (similar to the Quark method) - http://www.computerarts.co.uk/tutorials/create-striking-images-using-indesigns-b

Hope that helps, there's a few different ways to do things so its just finding the method that suits you.
If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask. And I'll post a follow-up to this if I find any other ways to do a popout.
