Help! I have created a newsletter in Indesign 5. I need to email this newsletter in a visual format rather than as a link to a pdf. I don't know how to do this. I am told it needs to be in html format. I use a mac with os lion, I use the mac mail program. The newsletter is uploaded to our website as a pdf. I thought I could email contents of this page but I can't! Desparate for help. Thank you in advance
There are only two formats you can save from InDesign that will preserve your layout: PDF and .indd
You can create HTML, but it won't look like waht you see in ID when it's done.
How many people are you emailing this to? You might need to use a ESP (Email Service Provider) like MailChimp: http://mailchimp.com/ if it's to a lot.
Do you know why you can't email the PDF? Sorry to say but HTML emails can be tricky so depending how it looks, you may have to redesign in Dreamweaver, or similar, then use an ESP to mail it out. Best case is to export the HTML code from InD and make modifications but Dreamweaver would still be involved.
MailChimp provide free templates (and there are lots others around) so you could start from one of them: http://mailchimp.com/features/email-templates/
