And.. one the things we hope for in the 1.3 development series is full
facing page support so you just place it and its there on both.. :)

> 1. If you're going to want your picture larger than one single page (a full spread for instance), create a one page document at least the same size of that spread or even larger to give you a little working space. Otherwise, you can just do the next steps into your current document. Work from left to right (for the purpose of this explanation).
> 2. Create your picture box and import the picture you want, make all adjustements, cropping, position, etc. to fit your exact need.
> 3. Once you're done, duplicate this picture box using the Item>Multiple Duplicate with 0, 0, 0 so you will have exactly 2 identical pic boxes with the same picture in them on top of each other.
> 4. Select the top picture box and reduce its format (using the property palette) to what you want it to be on the left hand page according to your layout.
> 5. Select the bottom picture box and, using the select tool, slide the left side of the pic box to the right until you reach the right side of the previous box. The idea here is to reduce the pic box without displacing the image inside it.
> 6. As a result of the steps 4 and 5, you will see one complete picture on your page but in two separate picture boxes. Select and cut the pic box that must be on the right hand page, paste it on the right hand page and give it the appropriate x-y coordinates.
> 7. Select the picture box on the left hand page and give it also the appropriate x-y coordinates.

> Be cautious with margins that won't print (printer dependant). If necessary, create a document longer and wider to allow you to put bleed and manual crop and register marks.
