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.
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?
- I am placing the very large image file in a A4 document
- I tryed indeed to replace a scaled image but also to insert the image from scratch.
- The scaling bar tells 100% ....
- My original file is 2048x2168 or higher with 200dpi resolution (according to windows), the indesign info tool gives me 542 dpi......
I realized that also, from time to time, if I correct the contrast/brightness of the image using Photoshop or windows, it can eventually insert correctly..... but only from time to time... and never if I do not do this operation..
