Be more specific:
(1) Version of InDesign
(2) Computer platform
(3) EXACTLY what file format are the graphic files.
I wanted to as the same, but additionally:
What does drag and drop mean here? From the desktop? Finder? Explorer? Or from another application directly from the document window to the InDesign page?
InDesign CS5.5 Version 7.5
Files are jpgs (that have been exported from InDesign)
When you place content from InDesign, why are you exporting it as JPG?
You can either
- save the INDD file and place it directly into InDesign or
- export the INDD as PDF/X-4 and place it into InDesign.
This should result in better quality than using JPGs which will be always a loss of crispyness, change of colors, blurry text and loss of quality.
Drag and drop from Finder or Desktop, both work
