InDesign adding an extra pixel on export

Jul 17, 2012 6:41 PM

Tags: #indesign #cs6

Whenever I export a file from InDesign CS6 with dimensions larger than 11" I'm getting an extra pixel along that edge. It is driving me batty, I can set up a brand new document with the width of 11" (3300 px on a 300dpi output) and when the export happens it will show up as 11.003" (3301 px) every time. This is a major issue and is wrecking havock with some of the packaging work that I'm doing.

    what format are you exporting to?  why pixels (as opposed to inches/cm)?  why only 300dpi?

    I suggest when you start a new document you select "Web" instead of print.


    And for the size of the document make it 3300 px.

    Before CS6 I was able to use the exact same document to export for multiple purposes. This is a bug.

    Which should be reported at Adobe - Feature Request/Bug Report Form


    In the meantime, why not open the PDF in Photoshop and convert to jpeg there? The results will probably be superior to ID's native jpeg export as a bonus.

    I agree Peter, I always export to PDF first then open that in Photoshop and save it as a JPEG. I get much better results.
