- 1. Create a 3D box in Illustrator using an effect.

- 3. Use the Vanishing Point tool to create a grid.
- 4. Copy and paste some Photoshop artwork onto the grid.

8. Save the changes.
When you're all done changing, you can close the Illustrator file. The shortcut for Close, as in many other applications, is Command+W (Mac) or Ctrl+W (Windows). You'll be prompted to save the file, and you should, of course, say yes to saving. Then you'll be led back to Photoshop. Once inside Photoshop, simply close and save this file also.
From here, go back to InDesign, and the placed Photoshop file should automatically be updated. Because we used the Edit Original function, the file automatically updates and does not give us a "modified" warning. Take a look at Figure 8. That's nice!
