Insert image keyboard shortcut.

The keyboad shortcut to insert a photo or any other graphic image is


I want to recommend it because, first, it is easy to remember. Everybody knows the copy-paste shortcut -
Inserting an object can be seen as a kind of copy-pasting.

Secondly, there may be numerous situations when using the shortcut is more efficient than drag-and-drop.

For example, when you’ve collected or created dozens of images to illustrate your project, you would put them in a folder within another folder put away in a project folder.

Instead of rummaging through the folders to find the image and then dragging and dropping the image, you type Command+Shift+V and the Insert dialogue window opens. In this window, you find the folder and choose the image from previews. Click Insert and the image will appear in your document.

If you are more comfortable with using menus, look for Choose... at the end of Insert menu.
