    Best file for importing images from Illustrator and Photoshop for small file sizes

    Katherine McIlveen-Brown Level 1

      Hello Adode consults!

       

      I'm in the process of preparing an inDesign file for a school project -- I've already had a few harrowing experiences sending large files to the printer that are too large to process (and a very grumpy computer, etc). The end result will be a poster around 36 inches by 4 or 5 feet.

       

      I'm wondering if there are any best practices for making sure that the files imported into InDesign are a manageable size to begin with. Should I, for instance, be saving each file as a jpeg before placing in Indesign?

       

      Thanks!
