Everytime when I import (png) images to InDesign I get poor quality (pixelated/small resolution) I dont know much about that software yet. I basically made image in photoshop and paste it into InDesign and now I want to make PDF presentation of it. I have that Quality of preview set on highest. The size of image is perfect for A4 format. It also says 300ppi.
Like Anon said.. When you import a graphic element Indesign doesn't render it clearly to save resources. You can go to View>Overprint Preview to see a better representation.
if it's the right size in inches/physical measurements and it's 300dpi, you're fine. indesign has a crappy preview so that the program runs faster, it's just giving you a quick reference of what will actually fill that space when it's printed. Can you imagine opening a photoshop document that's 200 inches wide and the multiple images in it are 300 ppi with good preview?
You can also use the Links palette to check all your images, after being scaled and cropped and moved around etc, are actually still 300 dpi/ppi (I forget which the palette says) to the human eye. Selecting the image in that palette should say "DPI" and "Actual DPI", you care about the Actual DPI number.
Thanks. I know about that menu with DPI and Actual DPI I googled bit about it but I was wondering why its crappy looking in software (got answer for that right on google) but then I saved it and it was still pixelated and I didnt notice that roll up menu with various DPI settings...
Anyway thanks guys for help :)
