I'm very new to InDesign. I increased the noise levels in inner glow in 'Effects' to create a textured look to my document (I wanted a paper texture and found this method on Google) but when I exported to pdf or jpg, I realized that my transparency effects completely disappeared. I checked my export settings and the flattening tool has been set to default.
Can someone help me understand what I should do to export that textured effect please?
Export to JPG has never been all that great and stopped trying it a long
time ago. Export to PDF and open that in Photoshop.
Export to PDF/X-4 and open that in Photoshop.
