What are you copying? Text? A graphic? A screenshot?

 

If it is an image that was was properly placed as a linked file, then right-click the image and edit it in PS from inside InDesign.

 

Also, what zoom level are do you have in Photoshop?

Hi Jane,

I want to use the layer capabilities of PS and the text capabilities of ID for example I have a background, then text, then a human subject mask that partially covers the text for effect. I do like to edit the background with the technique you described but to get all the layers, I think i need to move them to photoshop to get the effect, then move them back to ID to finish up as a book cover with all the bleed and margin capability of ID. When i copy in ID & paste in PS, the quality goes from 300 dpi to 72 dpi.

Zoom level in ID is about 75% when i copy. Photoshop zoom level is around 30%. The final product size is 5.25"x8"

I actually do open both images in PS. I do the graphics in ID & then copy & paste graphics to PS. From there I can layer as needed & then export that image back to ID to finish.

Notice how the model's head partially blocks the P & the I. I cant get that effect in ID but I need ID to do the graphics that I want and the margins and bleeds etc.

You need to place your .psd files on to indesign. copying and pasting causes issues.

"I do the graphics in ID & then copy & paste graphics to PS."

Bear in mind that this is an inherently incorrect workflow. Why not build the entire cover art in PS and set the book title type in PS as long as you save the file as a PS PDF you can have typesetting AND high-res output.

Mike, 

Thank you for your response. If you can find how to apply effects such as "bevel", "emboss", and "drop shadow" in photoshop, please let me know. Otherwise, I need to do these things in Indesign.

Why don't you create a single PSD file including the background and the woman (on separate layers) then import this PSD file in InDesign? Duplicate the image frame and hide the background layer and create a text frame between the 2 images frameCapture d’écran 2020-11-10 à 23.18.42.jpg

They are effects for the layer. Click the Fx symbol at the bottom of the Layers panel in PS (one of several ways).
