INDESIGN - recommended file format to place images into document
I was taught not to NEVER use JPEGs, and to always convert everything in to TIFFs. (something to do with compression)
I have only recently discovered that you do not need to convert images to CMYK (for print output), as INDESIGN does this for you! Shock horror, why oh why did I not know this before!!
As long as the images are 300 dpi for print, does it matter if they remain as JPEGS?
(I've got a massive project coming up and trying to cut down any unnecessary time as everything has been supplied as jpegs!!!)
- JPEGs are the sliced white of the image world, being the most common and widespread format, both in all kinds of cameras and across the web. They use loss compression to remove unwanted pixels and achieve smaller file sizes. it can easily use any where.
