I'm using CS6 to write a report (using a template) but I'm having trouble importing infographics which I have in various PowerPoint presentations. I have tried saving the actual graphics as pictures and tried importing them that way but am not having much luck. The pics are either distorted, blurry, appear with a black box around them. It seems to be impossible. I have changed the file format and have tried every other variation such as; TIF, JPEG, PDF, PNG - you name it. All of which don't seem to allow me to have the effect I desire.
I basically want to be able to import an infographic from PPT and be able to edit the size, colour and group and lock them together (when necessary). I have been even tried doing all of that in PPT, saving it as an image and tried importing to InDesign but still have the same issues.
Can anyone assist?
You’ll need to do it all in PowerPoint.
MS Office is not able to produce high quality graphics. If you have Illustrator, copy them from MS Office and paste it in Illustrator. Make some final work. Save as AI and place it into InDesign. But not everything from MS Office can be improved that way.
Take care all colors in MS Office are RGB, you might adjust colors in Illustrator to avoid colored black.
