    How to fix size of photo when inserting into book?

    sophieworth25 Level 1

      Please keep in mind that I'm a newbie when it comes to InDesign.

       

      What I'm doing is formatting an electronic version of my book, which previously had been published as a physical book, so as to get it ready for submission to Amazon Kindle as an e-book.  Since the photos in the physical book were originally in a "photo section," I've been fitting them into various places in the text for the e-book version. This has been going well, as have my insertions of some additional photos that I have on CD... until now. 

       

      Basically,  the photos I have on one particular CD, which look fantastic when viewing them on my computer - big size, vivid colors etc. - come out really tiny when I try to paste them in my book. I have no idea why this is, and I can't figure out what to do about it.

       

      Can someone help?

       

      Thanks!
