Placed Image in InDesign

Placed Image in InDesign

Placed Image in InDesign

I place an image in inDesign, and it is placed as a tiny image
(.09 x .04)

I can size it up using the hanles, butearlier, i was placing images just fine. They are screen shots and usually requre reduction after placing, but now-all of a sudden, they are being placed as these tiny images.

I cannot figure this out...

RE: Placed Image in InDesign


Just a guess but you may be placing screen clips that are 72 ppi into a document that is a lot higher resolution.

Try opening one of your screen shots in Photoshop and saving it at 300 ppi in a size close to what you want to use it.

See if that makes a difference.


RE: Placed Image in InDesign

You can always try pasting the same image into another program (MS-Word)  If the same issue with image size continues it is probably a low resolution capture in a high resolution output file as noted by Hawthorne.
