I don't think I need to go into a whole lot of detail with the Image Panel here in the EPUB Export options.…If you want to learn more detail, definitely watch some of the videos in the previous chapter…where I talked about all sorts of cool things that you can do with images and changing these settings around.…But just to recap, let's run through them.…First, the default is to preserve appearance from layout, meaning that when you export…to EPUB, your images will look the same as they did in the layout more or less, but they…will maintain the same crop, rotation if you applied any special effects to them like drop…shadow, even Bevel and Emboss, all those kind of fun things will be carried through.…
If you turn it off, then it's going to ignore anything you did to the image inside InDesign…and just export the entire image at the resolution that you specify, which brings us to this.…Which resolution should the images be at in the EPUB?…Any image that is currently over this setting will be down-sampled internally in InDesign…
