Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Customizing image sizes with CSS, part of InDesign CC: EPUB Fundamentals.
…In the 2014 release of InDesign CC,…Adobe added a few new features to the Object Export Options dialog box.…I want to talk about a couple of them right now.…These are Custom CSS Width and Custom CSS Height.…They govern what InDesign does, to the size of your images as defined in the CSS.…It's a little hard to get your head around,…especially if you're not familiar with HTML and CSS.…But I want to show you how choosing a different option here,…could work to your advantage in some situations.…
So, let's just leave them at the default and see what happens.…Notice that the images are anchored.…They are above-line anchored within the text flow.…And the text flow is this text frame, so it's not as wide as the entire page.…And thereabout, what would you say?…Sixty or maybe 70% of the width of the page.…I'll go ahead and export this to ePub.…I'll replace the existing one and it makes no different for…this feature if you're exporting to 3.0 or 2.0 for ePub.…
Under Object,…I am making sure that I want these images to be resized relative to the text flow.…
