Are you sure they're really JPEGs? Sometimes people name files .JPG when they're a different image format. If you open the image in Preview.app and choose Tools > Show Inspector, what does it say for Document Type?
What command are you using? It sounds like you are trying to OPEN the jpeg. To import any art, you must PLACE it, File > Place...
This worked. Thank you for your help.
Brave new world for we really old Adobe/MAC users just now upgrading from the Paleozoic tech age.
Thank you for the introduction to the Preview App & inspector.
I am now able to check my images per your suggestion.
I am new to InDesign, coming out of Quark on a G4, OS9x . . . yes, really.
Thank you for the introduction to Sandee Cohen.
I'm hoping she's preparing a new book on CS5.5/InDesign. In the mean time I'm taking your suggestion and getting her current book.
I also have a specific use/opportunity/place for creating & utilizing a broad collection of mp4 files. From an Adobe tutorial-lesson on ID.5.5 I saw
mp4 files being integrated and anchored into pages, then made useable for epubs, iPhone, iPad, etc.
Further explanation regarding these aspects of ID5.5, and CS5.5 generally from Sandee would be terrific I'm sure.
I'm also a Dreamweaver user, and there the mp4 files will play a major role.
Thanks also for the Lynda connection. I'm going to sign up for the 7 day trial as soon as I get my first full project underway here shortly.
When I signed up for my Adobe account, my name was already taken, so I am apparently 'Prokofiev' here.
I may find out how I can actualy post my picture however, as you do. That there's only one of.
Thank you again Bob. Ron Vaughn.
If you buy Sandee's book, there's a free download for additional 5.5 features after you register with Peachpit Press.
Buy Sandee's InDesign CS5 book. Then you can go to the Peachpit website, enter the ISBN and get a free download of the 5.5 update.
You and Bob were right . . . . . no suprise.
I bought Sandee's InDesign book and received the download.
