insert the same image on every other page
I am creating a booklet and want to include a small image on every odd page. To do that, use master pages, right? But here's the catch - I want to rotate and move the image just a little as the pages progress to make the image look like it's jumping. The image is a little man.) I could just copy the same image on every page and guess at it's location, but I'm wondering if there is a feature that let's you place it in the exact same spot on each page. Master pages won't work because I want to move each one. Any suggestions? I am using Indesign CS5. thanks.
Copy, move to the page you want the image on, and then Edit > Paste in Place
This positions the (pasted) image in the exact location it was copied from using to the page margins for positioning. This means if an image is sitting on a right facing page, it will paste in the same location (right page). Paste positioning is absolute not relative. So you would need to copy an image from the left page to left pages and then copy an image from the right page to other right pages.
For a non-facing page document, each paste will be in the same location for all pages.
