I am encountering a problem that I have never before experienced.
I am trying to insert an image (tried different images)... all at high resolution and when placed in the InDesign document, the image loses significant fidelity. I have tried both copying from PhotoShop and placing the image directly from a saved .png image.
From InDesign, setting display performance to high makes a small difference but it is still pixelated. Publishing (Export) to high quality also results in a low resolution image.
Also important to note:
- I am editing a previously created document with other high resolution bitmaps and they all appear sharp (on-screen) and publish at high resolution.
- I have opened a new document and still, I no success!
It appears as though something in the InDesign configuration has changed which is now causing any new images to auto-reduce their resolution.
Any thoughts? This is absolutely baffling.
Also select image and in the link info see the actual PPI resolution.
Could be that your document-level display settings allows for object-level settings and newly placed items are set to "typical display."
Copying and pasting images into InDesign is a bad practice. Use File > Place instead.
