Hi all,

 

I have photos at 300dpi - if I place into an InDesign document and save as a JPEG will it automatically convert to 72dpi or must it be done manually?

 

The photos are RGB.

 

My intention is to use them in a slide show.

Hi @Niall5CB2 , InDesign’s JPEG Export will let you export a selection, so you would have to select the image and export:

Alternatively you could Export the document as a PDF with the Compression tab set to Downsample to 72ppi, and then use AcrobatPro’s Export tool to Export All Images:

Why use InDesign? 
Use Photoshop to size the images and crop them. 

No idea what you're doing here with InDesign.

That PDF Export method seems to be the best way, thanks.
