How to convert PS clipping path into a dieline in InDesign?

Hi There,

 

Is there a way to convert a Photoshop clipping path into a dieline in Indesign?

 

Using 'Convert Clipping Path to frame' only gets you so far because the image is still clipped - and so clips off the bleed. Also, I can't select all the points (trying using diect select) to copy them.

 

Is there a way of separating the clipping path from the image in InDesign?

 

Have also tried to copy/paste the path from Photoshop but it's a bit sketchy. And not only do you have to re-size and re-position the path, I keep getting an EPS undefined error - I assume it's the size of the path? It's a 6meter wide (18ft) Billboard so nhas a bit of detail.

 

Is there a way of doing this properly and using image co-ordinates so everything lines-up with minimal fuss?

 

Cheers

Have managed to copy/paste into illustrator, add a stroke then copy/psate into Indesign. But is there a better way using the clipping path within the image?
