But InDesign is…trying to save itself time and effort by displaying the image at a lower quality.…
If you would rather trade up for higher quality, here's what you do. Go up to…the View menu and choose Display Performance and then choose High Quality…Display. And then notice how much better the image quality gets on screen.…You also have the option of assigning image quality for a single image.…So let's say in general, you find that InDesign is working better if you have…
