- Did you switch on the high quality display of images? You can do it from the context menu.
- How does it look, when you export a PDF? This is important, not how it looks like in InDesign.
What you see in ID is a preview image, not the actual pixels you see in Photoshop, and the jpeg compression in the preview can distort the colors a bit. This does not affect the output, which does use the actual image.
That said, grayscale images may output lighter or darker than you expect depending on how they were saved. ID does not use grayscale profiles, and simply transfers the gray values to the Black channel in the document CMYK profile. To get a more accurate view, you should preview with Overprint Preview turned on.
okay, the pdf looks better... was worried because created a project in illustrator with same pictures and it came out with the increased highlights... thanks...
looked the same with overprint preview, but the PDF version looked better... thanks...
