  2. CMYK JPG export does not preserve the correct dpi export information

    To demonstrate this bug, I've made an A4 landscape document as shown in image 1.
    If I export this to an RGB PNG using the settings in image 2, the image exports as expected and all figures - including the ppi - are correct as shown in image 3.
    If I export this to a CMYK jpgs using the settings in image 4, the image exports but the expected ppi of 300 ppi is incorrect and it has exported at 72ppi, though the pixel dimensions are correct (shown in image 5).
    If I export this to an RGB jpg using…

  3. Image quality of exported JPG/PNG very low for InDesign 17.2.1

    Since the latest update, exporting image files is virtually impossible and creates very low images. See attached for comparison between Photoshop and InDesign exported files. This issue may be caused by a problem with the Nvidia Studio Driver and the lates update for InDesign. The same problem occurs when exporting a highres PDF and then Exporting from Acrobat to an image file.

  5. EXPORTATION JPEG - GESTION DES COULEURS

    • L'exportation jpeg ne tient pas compte des pseudonymes du gestionnaire d'encre.
    • Le résultat de l'exportation jpeg ne tient pas compte non plus du type d'encre utilisée (transparente ou opaque). Le premier point à été résolu par un script, merci de l'inclure dans les fonctionnalités d'Indesign. Le deuxième point n'a pas pu être corrigé, merci de faire le correctif.

  6. PNG Export Quality

    There is a huge difference in the rendering quality of JPEGs vs PNGs in InDesign.

    See attached document that demonstrates the difference between the two formats, exported from the same InDesign document, using maximum quality, 72 DPI with anti-aliasing turned on.

    The obvious differences are the moiré in the white top and the edges of the legs in the girl at the bottom, including the fine detail in the stitching.

    It would be great if the PNG export engine could be improved.

  8. Photoshop and Indesign pixel will not be the same

    Spesso per delle testate online devo esportare dei JPG con pixel e risoluzione definita (ex. 336x576px e 72dpi). Rispettando tutti i parametri le grafiche vengono pixelate, devo fare più passaggi per poter inviare un file accettabile (esportarlo in .EPS portarlo su Photoshop e esportarlo per il web, oppure altri trucchetti) e sembra non esserci soluzione attualmente.
    Questa è stata la "non risposta" di Adobe:
    "Because a pixel has no physical size, and InDesign measures raster images in their physical length, not pixels.
    In InDesign Pixels are a static unit of measurement, and is not related to image resolution—an InDesign page…

  9. Export

    When exporting (CC2021, Big Sur) JPG from page to OSX Serve (OSX10.10.5), file size is 0 KB, but when export to desktop file is ok. No matter what JPG settings are. No error message. Other exports (pdf, epub) goes well.

  10. png keylines export

    When I export designs using an imported PNG graphic, the finished PDF shows an unwanted dark line around the crop area of the PDF.
    This doesn't seem to happen with jpegs or ai files.

  13. Jpeg exported by Indesign have wrong dimensions when combined into PDF in Acrobat

    A company needs to export Indesign documents in jpeg format. The jpeg files produced must be combined into a single PDF file. The problem is that the produced PDF does not maintain the original dimensions of the Indesign file.
    The same files opened and saved again by Photoshop, instead, produce PDFs with correct dimensions when processed by Acrobat.
    Instead of 480.00 x 330.00 mm, the file appears to have the dimensions of 1,999.99x1,374.8 mm.
    It should be noted that by exporting the files in PNG format, the problem does not occur.
    They required to export in JPEG format because they…

  15. beim sRGB jpg export ist Adobe RGB Profil eingebettet

    Beim Export eines sRGB-JPG's aus InDesign 2019 ist in dem Foto dann Adobe RGB-Farbraum eingebettet.
    Die Farben sind eigentlich korrekt (entsprechen dem sRGB-Farbraum), aber es ist eben fälschlicherweise das Adobe RGB-Etikett eingebettet, so dass die Farben dann falsch interpretiert werden.

  18. Exported JPG and PNG are not recognised when trying to Insert Image in Word 2011

    Indesign 12.1.0.56 on macOS Sierra 10.12.5. Exporting as jpg or png files are not recognised when I go to insert them into Word 2011 on Mac.
    However, files are recognised when:
    - exported from Indesign 12.1.0.56 x64 on PC and inserted into Word 2011 on Mac
    - exported from Mac and inserted into Word 2010 on PC
    - I had no problems when using indesign 2015 on Mac and inserting into Word 2011 on Mac.
