My goal is to create some large buttons for the web. I probably should have done this in another program, but since I'm a beginner to Adobe and still learning, I drew them in InDesign, the program I'm most educated on. I created an embossed box with rounded corners and added on some product photos and text.
I copied and pasted the boxes onto a transparent background in Photoshop, the exported them for Web as PNGs. They came out very pixelated. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks for any help!
Copying just takes a scrap of the actual data from InDesign to Photoshop in your workflow. Hence you're getting pixelated output. The best way is to work in Photoshop use Pen tool to make curve corners and then place Photos and add text layers.
Try exporting to PDF from InDesign (don't use the smallest file size preset), then open the PDF in Photoshop.
