image size in document not matching

Feb 16, 2013 4:26 PM

My goal: a PDF 1024px x 768px

My document size: 1024px x 768px

My pictures: 1024px max on either dimension

 

Problem: images 1024px width placed in document visually are not full size but InDesign says they're in there at 234% of natural size.

 

How on earth can this be?

 

What is method for taking pictures sized for the page size and slapping them in there and having them be the right visual size/page size?

 

thank you!

    Waht was the resolution of th eimage when it was saved in Photoshop? To get a 1:1 size in ID when working in pixels you'll want to save at 72 ppi.

    I don't use iPhoto, but I'd say making an assumption about the resolution would be foolish.

    Waht does ID say the actual and effective resolutions are when you check the Info panel?

    So it was saved at 300 ppi, and it's been scaled unevenly. To get your  1:1 correspondence you need to scale the image 416.6667%

    If you drag from finder, you can click and drag a frame to fit the ID page size and your image will scale to fit.

    They shoulds in the final output. You may see some degradation in ID, even using High Quality Display, becasue you are looking at a jpeg preview, not the actual image pixels.
