Pictures - Placeholders
A Placeholder is an empty picture frame that reserves the space and allows you to insert the picture later. Alignment tools will help you center the picture.
When to use
Pictures can be inserted right away or at a later date. But you can continue with your project while waiting for the pictures by using the Placeholders (empty picture frames) to hold their spots.
