I'm trying to create an Interactive Map with Buttons.  I know how to add the buttons and Hide, etc.  That's all working fine.

I'm having trouble with my high res picture that I'm using as a button, coming out fuzzy.  I've got Overprint View checked on my document and High Quality Display checked but it's still coming out fuzzy.  What am I doing wrong???

 

Here's the button I'm using:  37 S. Compass Point Way.png

Depending on the format of the image, you may be able to improve it using Object > Export Options > EPUB and HTML tab. Increase the resolution. Also, what is your final output?

I'll try your suggestions and let you know what happens.

I was planning on using Adobe PDF Interactive. We usually use it as a Print
out but I also want to be able to email the map to customers. I've heard
that using that may not be the best to use but I'm unfamiliar with EPUB or
anything like that.

Do you have a preference on the best way to do this?

Is there a chance that the image you're using just doesn't have sufficient resolution at the size in which you are using it? Interactive PDF success can be spotty since you can't control how a user opens the PDF (i.e. in a web browser or which application they use to open the PDF).

 

Have you considered using Publish Online? It's not a steep learning curve and you can simply supply your users with a web URL instead of sending them a file.

I have been learning about Publishing Online and it said the images need to
be 96ppi. I changed my images to that size and they're still fuzzy. Also,
when I save it as an Interactive PDF the map is clear but when I Publish it
online, even the map is fuzzy. I'll try to find some more tutorials to see
what I need to do to make everything work! They always make it look so
easy!!!

Thank you for your help!

I like using Publish Online for these types of projects. Users can view using any browser (but they do need internet access, which they would presumably have by virtue of reading email). You can include all types of interactivity for things like your map. You could have a link to it in your email.

Here are some examples of the many types of things that can be done with InDesign and Publish Online: http://bit.ly/PubOnCollection

"it said the images need to be 96ppi. I changed my images to that size and they're still fuzzy."

 

How did you change the resolution?

What was it before you changed it?

What are the image's dimensions?

When you select the image in InDesign, what is the Effective Resolution?

Do you still have an original copy of the image that doesn't look "fuzzy"?

I've changed the photo now to a "Web Use" photo and the actual PPI is 300
and the effective PPI is 828 x 790. The Dimensions are 2500 x 1665. I've
tried publishing again and it's still fuzzy.
