Need HELP with Indesign export to .PDF quality

What I'm trying to do is create a template in photoshop (which I've done) open that template in Indesign and ad tables to it (which i've done) then export the finished document to .PDF. My problem is when i export all lose all quality and clarity of my images and text.??? i dont understand why. When i save a file as .PDF form photoshop it reads fine in acrobat. Why not .PDF's created from Indesign????

RE: Need HELP with Indesign export to .PDF quality

What are the settings you're using in InDesign?

RE: Need HELP with Indesign export to .PDF quality

And, can you tell me what sort of file it is that you're saving from Photoshop and placing in InDesign?

RE: Need HELP with Indesign export to .PDF quality

Well my settings for print (thinking i woud get the best quality), I set the all three DPI settings at 1200 (assuming that would help the quality) I also tried no compressing under all options.

Type of file: I've tried importing .TIFF, .EPS, .PDF

Thanks for your quick response AdobeTIm. I'm feeling heat right now!

Basically my goal is to create an online catalog. Also consider for print. I just cant get the text from the template or the images to hold there quality while being scaled in acrobat (.PDF) I would like them to be clear @121% but i can only get clarity @100%.
