Join Michael Murphy for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting grouped images and objects, part of InDesign CS6: HTML.
There are a couple of image types that InDesign handles…very differently when it exports from a print page to HTML.…The first is any drawn shape, like we see here, and here.…These are drawn shapes in InDesign And…they're used as graphic elements on the page.…By default InDesign will just ignore these.…So you have to deal with them in another way if…you want them converted to images and exported for your web layout.…
The other is groups.…This is an arrangement of five images.…Grouped together that I would like to keep in…this arrangement when I export it to the web.…But unless I tell InDesign that's what I want, that's not what's going to happen.…Let's not do anything to this file and let's just export…it using InDesign's defaults.…I'll hit Cmd+D to export, I'll export this to my desktop under image.…I'm going to make sure I have optimized preserve appearance from…layout and 72 pixels per inch chosen, then I'll click OK.…
And InDesign did obey the Preserve Appearance from…Layout option but it did it image by image.…
