Hi, when I prepare an InDesign file using "Share for Review" feature, the images are exported out rather low resolution / blurry as seen here:https://assets.adobe.com/id/urn:aaid:sc:US:913908ef-996f-4b5f-b99d-f730a011bda9?view=published

These images are quite hi-res in the original document and look fine in InDesign, but they are overly compressed when viewed in the review pane. The original source images are in PNG format.

Hi careapp, best do a bug report at: https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs Also come back when done and post the link to the report so that we can vote for fixing this. My assumption is that InDesign has a problem with the high value for effictive ppi in your case. That's not normal! FWIW: Are you able to export to PDF with option [Smallest File Size] and not see this issue? Regards, Uwe Laubender ( ACP )

I was hoping there was something I was doing - but to find out this is just how it is supposed to be?  No.  I can't constantly explain why everything looks terrible.  No client will understand "that's just how it is" and sign off on something or even give feedback without constantly asking why things look bad.  Vectors look great -- it's just rasterized images.

Did this ever get resolved? I have seen some Adobe employees saying standard practice as it's used to share work in progress and made to be quick so makes the resolution of images smaller, it's only for internal use etc...

 

But at my place of work we are using this to share designs with clients too, so they can comment their amends to us, pin to specific pages and avoids the client keeping files that aren't finalised and having the wrong one on file. It streamlines the process when designing websites in XD and sharing with the client, they get to see the site look as realistic as possible and makes feedback easier so would be great to see in the same quality on other Adobe products.

Even when you're only using them internally, internal stakeholders are going to see a very low-res image and say "hey that image is too low res." It's useless to use this as a solution for reviews when you have to say "oh ignore the pixelated images" and then do a separate review later as a PDF to get approval on the image quality.
