I am producing a book and inserting scanned photos. The problem is many of the photos are so pixelated that I can see them in "normal" view. Most, but not all are clear when I go to the "presentation" view, but some come in ok, then a few seconds later, they become very grainy. Here are my questions:
1. Will everything print ok regardless of view?
2. What's the best protocol for importing? I currently scan at 1200 dpi, import to Lightroom where I edit, then export as a tiff or jpeg with resolution set at 400 pixels per inch.
How is the quality if you click with right mouse click on an image and change the display quality.
If you print, you should not print directly from InDesign, export as PDF and print from Acrobat.
Important in InDesign is the effective resolution, normally for high quality it is about 300ppi, images are used in rgb with color profile, if transparency is included use psd, if not use a jpg with high quality.
The preview is less important than the Effective Resolution in knowing if the output will be acceptable. What is the value of the Effective PPI for these photos when you check the link info?
The display quality fixed it. I ran some test prints and everything looks good. Thanks
