Greetings:

 

Does anyone know how to use text around photos? 

 

I make sexy photo as a .png format file with transparent layers, and I can't make that text following down with girls body lines.  

 

Thanks

    Layout in landscape - you can flow text, but only around the horizontal and vertical (square/rectangular) image borders.

    I thought it was possible to flow text around other shapes? The EO Wilson book does that in places. Haven't experimented with non-rectangular image borders myself yet.

    I don't understand why you tell me to check my email when you are not sending any email to me…

     

    BTW, this was a serious question. I haven't experimented with this myself yet, but the EO Wilson book has places where the text follows non-rectangular outlines around images.

    Don't think there is a problem with my filters. I can't find anything unusual. What address did you send to, and what subject heading?

    K T, I have invited you three times now to email me if there is something you wish to discuss. My email address is a matter of public record.

     

    You claim that you have emailed me three times, but I cannot find any trace of a message from you, including in any spam folders, and I have checked the relevant filter settings.

     

    I have asked you twice to let me know the subject heading and to confirm the email address you used, so I can check more thorougly for messages from you. You did not repond to these requests. I also provided an alternate email address, michi@zeroc.com, which is subject to different filtering mechanisms.

     

    I doubt that you ever sent any message at all, simply because no other person on the planet seems to have a problem getting in touch with me via email. If you disagree, please let me know the details of when you sent the message, to what address, and with what subject heading, so I have chance to locate it.

     

    If you wish to say something to me via email, I suggest that you simple send an email. Please refrain from claiming here that you sent a message when you did not. I do not want to lose yet more time searching for non-existent messages from you.

     

    Michi.

    Hi David

     

    Here's one way. Place the photo onto the page and set No Wrap for the photo. Then create a shape (using the standard shape tools) on top of the photo and set it to Wrap the text. You can create almost any shape but should experiment first on a basic page of text to find out how this works. Lastly you need to make sure that the shape you created has no fill and no stroke (Inspector). The Shape on top of the photo will create the illusion that the text is wrapping around the desired object in the photo, when actually the text is wrapping around the shape, not the photo.

     

    There are other ways, including masking the photo with standard editable shapes (Format>Image>Mask with shape) and also applying Instant alpha (Format>Image>Instant Alpha). I found this somewhat flaky, but it does work.
