Hiding parts of images falling outside the page


Question

I'm using an image that it a lot bigger than my page and I don't want to make it smaller. Problem is, I see it entirely in my inDesign window, not just the part fitting into my document, but the rest of the image too, extending far beyond it.

Is there a way to hide this part? I don't need it and it distracts me too much.

Accepted Answer

Use the Selection Tool (black arrow) to click a handle on the Image Frame and reduce the size of the frame. This doesn't change the image at all. It merely alters what is visible.

You can also hit the W key to change the screen mode to Preview (View > Screen Mode > Preview). This hides everything except the actual page content.
