When I create banners in Indesign 14.0.1 I use hires images as TIF and exporting it to JPG. The final files in JPG end up with corrupt pixels. I have to place a lowres JPG in Indesign to be able to export it as a correct JPG.

Also 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 need CMYK color files, which will then have to go to print.
Tested on Adobe Indesign CC 2017 to Adobe Indesign CC 2020.

In InDesign 2018 (v.13), I had similar problem with pixelated images (which links were updated) appeared suddenly in my exported PDFs (print), no matter how high quality preset I used . To fix it, I had to trash InDesign current preferences and cache manually to get a fresh start. In Windows, I closed InDesign, I renamed the 2 directories (e.g. suffix with .bak):
then start InDesign again to find it fixed. The tutorial to do that in MacOS can be found on Internet as well.
Otherwise, the workaround is to export to "PDF (interactive)".
Hi all, I had this issue too. Though not a permanent solution, I found that when I selected the items in indesign and/or changed the preview mode to high quality it made a high quality jpeg. If I kept the file at typical quality I got the jagged edges. Go figure, I hope they fix the issue soon, I don't really want to be changing everything to high quality every time before I export. Not a very productive way to work.
It would be nice to be able to control the anti-aliasing settings as well.
Please fix this. 2018 InDesign used to export the most crisp and sharp 72dpi jpegs but this new update has created a serious bug. Attached you can see the difference.
I am having this same issue.

Did you ever get this solved? Having same problem

When I export a file from InDesign as a 72 dpi jpg, a vertical line comes out in the image saved damaging the final file.
(I put it inside a red line to show you). It is something that is happening suddenly. So, I need to save it as a PDF and then converts it as a jpg. Too much for 200 files.
Thank you for your help.
It happens to me and in my colleague computer :(

I have been exporting InDesign files to PNG for use in emailers.
The quality was great until I did the latest update, not quite sure if this is me or has something changed.
I found PNG rendered text better than jpg but this is no longer the case.
Any help appreciated.

what is you version of InDesign? What OS?
I cannot see this behavior on InDesign CC 2018 for Mac OSX.
Tested with InDesign CC 2018, Mac OSX 10.11.6 (German).
Do you export a selection or the whole page?
A workaround would be to export to PDF/X-4, open and render that to pixels with PhotoShop. In one of my tests this gives me the more accurate result. With InDesign's export to JPEG a 100Y and 100K object turned to 99Y and 99K. Not so with rendering an exported PDF.

Beim Exportfenster kann ich die Qualität im Dropwdon zwar anwählen, aber die Werte ändern sich nicht.

I realize that the examples I had uploaded might not show the issue best so I can add more images that showed the issue more prominently if needed.

I often need to export both jpeg and pdf documents but for some reason since I updated to the most recent version of indesign the jpeg exports have had pixelated or jagged edges.
The issue seems to to be more prominent on vector elements within the project but text isn't show as clear either. It doesn't seem to be causing as much of an issue with images though.
If I save as a pdf then export the pdf as a jpeg it looks a bit better but still not as good as it should.
