Type of images in the artwork can be compressed differently.

 

Why are you saving them as jpg from Photoshop and placing in InDesign?

Adding text or other info?

 

Save from Photoshop to PDF and place that in InDesign if you need to.

 

Or of the whole thing is done in Photoshop then save it as a pdf from Photoshop and use that.

>> Save from Photoshop to PDF

or as .psd

Remember, never say you can't do something in InDesign, it's always just a question of finding the right workaround to get the job done. © David Blatner

Hi @jamie.bip , what are the dimensions of the JPEGs? 25mb seems very large for a JPEG even when saved with high quality compression.
