the above photo shows 2 versions of the same image, the upper from Adobe Creative Cloud file of the original image created in Graphic for iPad and uploaded to there. The lower shows the same image placed into InDesign document. I'm still relatively new to InDesign, so I'm not sure about settings for colore profiles, etc., but I'm wondering if that is what might be the problem. I really want the brighter colors of the upper image.
If the final output will for screen viewing, set your Edit>Transparency Blend Space to Document RGB, and make sure Overprint Preview and Proof Colors are not turned on.
Thanks for speedy reply.
The final output will be print on coated fine at paper using Epson R1900 printer. Does that change the Transparency Blend Space/Overprint Preview/Proof Colors edit?
Composite inkjet printers almost always have RGB drivers—the final conversion to CcMmYKk is handled in the driver. So, yes set your blend space to RGB, and set the document’s assigned RGB profile (Edit>Assign Profiles) to a large gamut profile (i.e., AdobeRGB not sRGB).

Besides Blend Space, what are your Color Settings currently in ID?
What your screen grab shows is the expected color shift if converting to a typical CMYK profile. Since your Epson is an inkjet printer with a wider gamut (their CMYK inks are purer and more vibrant), you will want to at least change your Proof Setup to link to an Epson ICC profile for your paper setup. (You should have set of ICC profiles with your printer's installer... if not, you can get them online at Epson and install them. If there's not one for Fine Art Paper use the closest or the "glossiest"). Then, when you select "Proof Colors", you can see the expected shift in color in your final print. Just because you want the bright colors in your JPG, does not mean they are possible on print, even with an 8-color printer.
