How to Create Social Media Assets in InDesign with Layered Photoshop Files


In this InDesign how-to video, Angelo Montilla demonstrates taking advantage of the layers in a Photoshop file that has been placed in InDesign. By turning layers on and off—from within InDesign itself—and layering graphic elements, he allows the elements to interact with each other and make captivating social media images.

This comes from Angelo’s upcoming session at the Design + Marketing Summit, July 18–19, 2022. The Design + Marketing Summit is the essential HOW-TO event to master design and production techniques for social media, email, print, and more. See the agenda and register now at
