PSD Import

Import and Manipulate Photoshop (PSD) Documents

QuarkXPress® lets you import Adobe® Photoshop® files, then hide and show layers and channels, clip to embedded paths, control layer opacity, and apply blend modes — all from right there in the layout.

Traditionally, layout artists had to create graphics in Adobe Photoshop, then export them in an intermediary format such as TIFF before importing them into a layout. With QuarkXPress, you can import Adobe Photoshop (.psd) files directly into a layout.

That means one less step when you’re building layouts, one less file to keep track of, and less time and effort when you need to update images. Best of all, these adjustments are nondestructive.

That means your original Photoshop file is never changed — the effects are only applied in the layout.

At a glance:

  • Import Photoshop files with a menu command, or simply drag and drop them into the layout
  • Manipulate Photoshop files without having to launch Photoshop
  • Use a dedicated PSD Import Palette
  • Maintain QuarkXPress edits when the Photoshop file is updated

Import Tables and Charts from Microsoft Excel

QuarkXPress lets you import data from Microsoft® Excel spreadsheets, make it beautiful, and then update the content from the Excel file without losing any formatting.

In QuarkXPress® you can import tables and charts from Microsoft® Excel®. Upon import the content is automatically converted to a QuarkXPress table. Here we show options for how you can convert a table, including the option to automatically update the data when it changes in the source file.
