    Indesign issue! Help!

      Help!

       

      I am wanting to set an TIFF image as a background of an A4 advert but its looks massive and unsure how to scale down without losing some of the image.

       

      Thank you

          Not sure what you mean by that. Your best bet would be to open the image in Photoshop and resize/crop it there to your A4 page (+bleed) at the desired resolution. Then Place in InDesign, and no resizing should be needed.

           

          OR, resize in InDesign using a corner handle while holding down Ctrl/Cmd+Shift. If the image is much larger than needed, this will push the effective resolution (see Info panel) up, and potentially cause a processing-bloat problem at output.
