When you exported to JPEG did you select the "Export Selection" or the "Export Page" option?
What I do with InDesign for web images is I export to PDF first.
Then I open that in Photoshop - you can elect the size of the image to crop to and the resolution.
Then save from there.
I have never liked InDesigns export of jpegs, they come out horrible in my opinion.
The only way you'll get exactly what you want is to use the right tools.
That means not skipping past Photoshop.
Yes I used to always save as pdf and then open in photoshop until recently.
I guess when your busy a quick version always seems more appealing.
I think I will go back to my old ways as this has cused me no end of headaches.
Thanks for your quick reply
Thanks for that tip Eugene. I recently had to convert a flyer created in ID to JPG and also noticed the conversion directly from ID didn't look good. I haven't managed to get the text in the flyer to look crisp tough. Any tricks for that?
Export as a PDF
Open in Photoshop
Save as a PNG
It should be 72 ppi and the corect pixel width/height when placed at 100% (don't scale it when placed in the flyer.
JPEG is a terrible format for text. It's a lossy format, which means pixels are lost when it's saved, and text suffers.
PNG is a much better format for text, line art, and basic graphics, such as squares, circles, dodecahedrons and other shapes.
PNG is a lossless format.
