    JPEG files cannot be opened directly in InDesign. They can only be placed.
    Create a new document and from the File menu, select the Place option. Select a JPEG file and click Open.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

        It might help if you actually learn the program and know what it is used for. Common sense goes a long way.

        InDesign can't open .jpeg files on their own the way Photoshop does. If you want to place an image into an InDesign file you need to create an InDesign document first. Then you can drag and drop it or use the "Place" option under the "File" menu.
