Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with PNG and transparency, part of InDesign CS6: EPUB Kindle and iPad.
Let's talk about a new kind of image file format that InDesign CS6 now exports to the…PNG, or PNG format, properly pronounced ping.…It will only convert images that you have placed into InDesign into PNG when it exports to…EPUB if the image is a vector image with transparency.…I have just such an image open right now in Illustrators CS6, and if I swipe over this…you can see all of its wonderful little vector outlines and the text The Roux Academy of Art,…Media and Design is text on a path.…
Let's jump over to InDesign and place that logo on the page, so I'm going to File > Place…in my Links folder in the exercise folder I have one. Here it is, roux academy logo_black,…and we'll just click right there. It appears here in the Links panel.…Now it's an AI file, and it has transparency, so it will be converted to PNG on export.…Let's check that out. Go to Export to EPUB with Command+E or Ctrl+E, let's save it on…the desktop. I have done this a few times, so we're going to overwrite one.…
