is there a way to save the picture with the clipping path i just created for it in high res? I tried just exporting it on its own as a JPEG and PDF and placing it in a file and it is blurry now. I still have the original file open with the path so if there is way to save it before i close it so it can be placed in other files that would be helpful.
Most likely you just need to adjust the view settings in InDesign. View > Display Performance > High Quality Display
You can always use photoshop to create your clipping path and then savig it and using the image wth clipping paths in indesign files
