Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Specifying image resolution and appearance, part of InDesign CS6: EPUB Kindle and iPad.
The good thing to know about dealing with images when you export to EPUB from InDesign…is that you usually don't have to do a dang thing.…Anything that appears in your Links panel or anything that you have placed not just images…like this JPEG here, but if you have placed a PDF or a layered Photoshop file or another…InDesign file, for that matter will become rasterized and will be exported as a JPEG…in 90% or maybe 99% of the instances in the resulting EPUB.…The EPUB file format supports JPEG, GIFs, PNGs, and SVGs, but InDesign will only export…to JPEG, GIFF, or PNG.…
And JPEG is what it uses for basically everything.…In my experience the only time it exports to GIFF is if you have placed a GIFF.…PNGs I am talking about in another video, and that's mainly when you have a vector file…with transparency like a placed Illustrator file.…It makes no difference really what resolution the image was when you placed it.…In this case this image is pretty high resolution, you can see that I have added another field…
