I do mostly work for print, but today was asked to save a web graphic created by one of our designers in InDesign. Unfortunately, our designer created something that looks good on screen, but when saved to a png or jpeg, is completely unusable (type too small, unreadable). The file was created at the proper dimensions (95px x 150px), but since he only viewed it @ high resolution on screen and printout, and didn't view it @ the actual pixel dimensions, we now have to completely recreate this job.
Is there a way to preview the current document in InDesign on screen at a specific resolution, so that he will know what the final product will look like without having to export it?
If you are using CS6 choose web intent when you create a new document and set the Page Dimension to the desired pixel dimensions. Then double click the Magnifier tool to set the view to a 1:1 screen to pixel ratio.
If you are using an earlier version set your rulers to pixels or points and set the view at 100%
