Picture remains small when inserted

Apr 17, 2012 11:31 PM

While I am trying  to insert images on Indesign by dragging the picture or by using "place", the images remains small and does not take its original size.


My images looks large enough when I open them with windows/photoshop, but remain very small on indesign whatever I do.

My images are tif files, 2048x2168 or higher with 200dpi resolution.


Does anyone has an idea?


Thanks in advance.

    Would you have the PlaceAndScale plug-in installed, by any chance (one of the freebies we have)? That's known to confuse people after they forget they installed it. If you do, bring up its preferences and uncheck the 'Enabled' checkbox.

    Are you placing files in a very large InDesign document giving the impression the image looks small?

    Is the new image you're placing replacing an image that has scaling applied? If you select the too-small image using the hollow pointer tool, does it show scaling in the toolbar at the top? Does the sizing/ppi info in the info panel match the info of your original file?
