If you know the concept of headers and footers in Word, the master pages in InDesign go so much further. It’s more than just adding a page number of a chapter heading. Graphics can be embedded and many different masters can be created. This video from Jeff Witchel says it better than I ever can.
Peachpit publishes many wonderful books on Adobe and many other topics. I own many of them. Some of their best books are their “classroom in a book” series of which I have several. Their website also provides many useful videos and tutorials.

A range can either be a group of cells or a single cell.
If you’re a photographer and are sharing you work either via internet, email, even prints, this tutorial is useful. I did not do this one. Although the video works with CS5, it will work with CS6 and most like a previous version.
This is a great way for you to protect your work. I often watermark my photos so that they won’t be “stolen”. Yes, if someone is really talented it can be removed from the image.
