I have to quickly create 40 pages for a magazine and don't have time to learn InDesign's complicity. I am adept creating within Adobe photoshop cs6. How can I create the pages, then 'place' them in the Indesign pages with automatic CMYK conversion? Thank you in advance.
Do you mean just the photos or entire pages of text and images? If photos, just convert them to CMYK in Photoshop before placing into InDesign (check w/ the printer about using the correct ICC profile.)
If text and photos, sorry, I would not recommend formatting an entire magazine in Photoshop. ...your printer will cry.
