    Why is my hi-res JPEG crisp in InDesign, but blurry when exported to PDF?

      Hi, I am having trouble exporting a jpeg from InDesign to PDF, and I can't figure out what I am doing wrong.  Here is a screenshot of the jpeg (its a logo) in InDesign:

      And here is a screenshot of the same logo in the exported PDF:

      Some background notes, in case it is helpful to diagnose the issue:

      • I am using InDesign CC on a Mac.
      • I tried to export using all of the presets, but the results were all the same.
      • The str logo resolution is 300 dpi at 10cm x 10cm.

       

      I'm flummoxed. Any help would be great!
