…In the latest update to Adobe InDesign CC, there…are many changes and improvements to the EPUB workflow.…In this movie I'll discuss a few key…changes that I think will be important to you.…First off, let's talk about images.…In the latest update to InDesign, JPEG images are…now generated using the .jpg extension versus the .jpeg extension.…Not a huge deal necessarily, but always good to…know in case you see it and are thrown off.…In most cases these extensions can be used interchangeably.…Alternate text attributes on images, which are a key component in making…your document more accessible to those…with disabilities, is now blank by default.…
Whereas previously, it would be taking the embedded…alternate text from the image file itself, now you'll…have to add in your own alternate text…to each image that you use inside of InDesign.…In the Export Dialog and Object Export Options dialog, there is now…an option labeled, Use Original Image.…This will allow you to skip custom rasterization options for your…images and simply use the original files that you placed into InDesign.…
Note: Adobe Creative Cloud is updated on a regular basis. We will add more tutorials as features are added or changed, so check back often.
