Placing Images in InDesign

Adobe InDesign CS4 allows you to place multiple images (files, in fact), we all know that. But there's a cool feature called Contact Sheet Cascade. What is it? Well, let's say you wanted to place multiple images in a grid format on the page. The idea, is to be able to quickly create a contact sheet in InDesign, but you can use it for other things as well. Just hold down Command (Control) + Shift and drag. As you are dragging (keeping the mouse key held down) hit the left and right arrows to increase/decrease the amount of columns, or hit the up and down arrows to increase/decrease the number of rows. When you're ready, just let go of the mouse and all of the images are placed.
