Using a PhotoShop image in PageMaker

When I go to save many images, I can only save them as PSD or a PDD, now if I go to flatten image I can save as a .gif or a .bmp or any of those, but my question is whether there is a way to import or place a photoshop PSD or PDD in PageMaker.  I would appreciate the help. It just seems as though two programs made by the same company for use in graphic design would be able to support each others formats to some extent. Thanks again for the help.

Your problem is happening because you have layers, and coincidentally, you're using the wrong format.

You need to save as TIFF -- it's the preferred format for printing/DTP work. On the other hand it can't do layers.

Photoshop can't save a layered document to a non-layered format. Do Save A Copy, save as a TIFF, (without the layers) and keep the original with the layers.

I understand that, thank you.  If you'll read the question over, it will say that I know how to flatten the image and save it in a variety of different formats.  I was hoping there was a way to open a PSD in PageMaker since they are both Adobe applications.  Thank you for your help though.

OK then, here's my answer. No. You can't do it. : )

Just in case there's still a misunderstanding -- you're saying that you know how to flatten the image and save it in a different format. *I'm* saying that the "Save As Copy" command is an entirely different command, the use of which implies flattening, but leaves you free to keep the PSD original with all the fancy layers and stuff intact so that you can go back to it later.

Thanks for that.

It is very confusing, the fact that the programs are made by the same company but aren't entirely compatible.

Happy photoshopping.
