Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Reviewing object and image-conversion options, part of InDesign CC 2014: EPUBs.
…The Object panel and the Convergence Settings panel,…tell InDesign what to do with any kind of rasterized objects like images,…where things that you have rasterized from the Object> Export Options dialog box.…They are split into two panels, so that it's a little easier to deal with.…Let's look at the Object panel first.…Under the Object panel, we have two choices, Preserve Appearance from Layout,…which is the default, or Use Existing Image for Graphic Objects.…95% of the time you want to keep this one selected, Preserve Appearance from Layout.…
That means that after you've brought in, an original image, if you want InDesign to…export it with the same kind of scaling and cropping, rotation, drop shadow,…that kind of thing, then it should Preserve Appearance from Layout.…If you choose Use Existing Image for Graphic Objects, that would be true if you…have optimized your JPEGs and your GIFs and your PNGs and gotten them in at 100%.…And you don't want InDesign to process those,…to resample those at all, then you choose Use Existing Image for Graphic Objects.…
