    Why is it important to scale pictures to 100% in ID before printing?

      Hello,

       

      I have for years made sure that any photo in ID was at 100% scale before making a PDF that goes to the printer. If need be I would resize them in Photoshop.

       

      However, I have a dispute with a friend who says that this is not needed if the product is going to be printed digitally rather than offset.

       

      Is that true? And more importantly, why should photos be scaled to 100% in the first place? I really don't know why, I have just done it.

       

      Thanks,
