Adobe InDesign CS: bad image quality after place or paste
Posted on 2005-05-12
I am new to Adobe InDesign (CS) which I started using for a club magazine. Until now, I used to work in MS Word... I like the program, but one thing is really annoying: when I add an image (using Place [Ctrl+ D] or just pasting it), the quality is really bad. It's all pixels, text is hard to read and faces become hard to recognize.
If I paste the same image in Word or Photoshop, all goes fine and quality is good.
I guess that I am doing something wrong, but what? I tried several things, like saving as a PSD in Photoshop, converting to GIF, resizing outside InDesign (because scaling even makes things worse)... nothing helps.
