I am trying to export an image from InDesign to a JPG file and it will not export at he correct size
I have read other forums that told me to export at PPI: 72, tried this and it didn't work.
i am exporting as: JPG
Format method: Baseline
Resolution PPI: 72
colour space: CMYK
embed colour profiles and anti-alias are both checked.
When you export an image as a jpeg from InDesign make sure that the InDesign page size is the same as the size of the jpeg. If you have the image placed on a page larger than the image then the dimension of the InDesign page is what will be read when opening the jpeg in Photoshop.
This has long been a problem in InDesign. Basically, in order to make it work, you have to do a little math. Mike Rankin wrote it up here:
"in the Resolution (ppi) field, enter a little math equation: desired width/current width * 72
So for this example, the desired width is 600 (px) and the current width is 432 (px). So you’d enter 600/432*72 and press Enter."
See this page for all the details: https://indesignsecrets.com/tip-export-jpg-png-right-size.php
Keith Gilbert has written a free script that lets you export to a specific size (dimension) here: https://indesignsecrets.com/new-indesign-script-to-export-jpegs-at-a-precise-size.php
and it will not export at he correct size
By correct size do you mean pixel dimensions or print output dimensions? The JPEG export of a page or selection is to the Indesign output dimensions at whatever ppi resolution you choose. A placed image's original pixel dimensions or original output size are not considered, because you could have multiple image's with varying resolutions and scales on a page.
If you are working with pixel units, Indesign considers the output dimension of a pixel to be 1/72". So if you export a page item that measures 200x200 pixels to 72ppi, it will open in Photoshop at 200x200 pixels. If the page item happens to b an image its actual or effective resolution is not considered.
i have had this happen to me sometimes, i set the quality to low and that helps. If the issue persist i just make a photoshop document at the size i want and resolution. Place the .pdf of the image as a smart object and make the image. But its rare for me to have to go this further.
How do you get the right dimensions without the picture becoming pixeladed?
Also if your creating a digital Ad which program would be the best to create a digital Ad. I created digital Ad in indeisgn, didnt get the correct dimensions. when i resized it it became pixelated.
By digital ad do you mean for screen display only, or will it be printed? What are the required dimensions?
I do not know / no idea where you got this 'desired width' idea from.
My dimensions are 560px (w) x 150px (h). I have no 'desired' width, the width is set up. So what should I enter in the resolution when exporting please?
I tried to just do 560/560*72 and that did not turn out at an ideal size or quality.
If your InDesign document’s dimensions in Pixels is 560 x 150 no math is required, simply set the Resolution to 72ppi in the JPEG or PNG Export dialog and the exported image will have a matching 560 x 150 pixel dimension when viewed in Photoshop.
