How to save your InDesign file as a JPEG
Okay, so we need to save a jpeg out. Ready for some purpose. You might be sticking into a PowerPoint presentation or a word document or sending it to a website to be used as part of our Wordpress CMS something Okay you need a jpeg or a PNG same principle works. The one thing I'd say is that often a pdf will work as well. Okay. If I'm putting it into word or PowerPoint or pdf will go in. The nice thing about pdf is that the quality is always a lot better, especially for type. Okay. But if you have to use the J peg, let's do it this way. Let's go to file export. Same as a pdf down the bottom here where we used to say adobe pdf, go down to either jpeg or PNG super easy. Okay. And I'm gonna give it the same name but I'm gonna make a high res version, high resolution, high quality one, you can call it what you like hit save. I'm saying we get into that folder on my desktop. All pages. I'm going to do pages, we haven't done any spreads yet. We look at that later and then the quality. Okay. A...
nd you got two things that kind of really control what it looks like quality and the resolution quality will be how pixelated it is. Okay. How like what the is it? A bit scrappy and a bit yucky looking and medium will still look fine. Low will look gross. Never use. Low but medium will be fine. High will be pretty amazing and maximum. You won't see the difference between these two, I promise. Okay, so we're going to go for a high res one. Maximum. I guess it's gonna look as good as it can be. But the file size is going to be quite big. And then resolution here, the lowest of 72 the highest you want to go to is 300 anything past this? This thing is going to be absolutely big, like meters wide. So we're gonna go 300 color spaces. RGB. Okay. Always gonna be RGB for a Jpeg and leave this stuff at the bottom. Let's click export. Nothing really happens. You gotta go and find that folder and there's my high res. He's 1.4 MB. It's pretty big. Okay, but you look at the quality. Pretty awesome. Okay, beautiful. So let's do the version. Let's say I'm sending it out and it's going to go up into a website and I know that 1.4 MB is far too big for our website. So we're emailing even, it's pretty big. So we're gonna go to export and we're going to say, make something really small. Okay, I'm going to give it a name. I'm gonna call it low Rez Okay. And I'm going to go through and say maximum. I'm going to put it down to like high. Mm Hmm. Let's do medium. Okay. And this is the kind of lowest you ever want to go 72 at medium click export and you'll notice that the high res version, I'll make this a little bigger. I'll even make a little bigger. Okay, so 1.4 is the high res and see this one here kilobytes. So that is 0.4 Instead of 1.4. So it's tiny compared to it. And look at the quality, it's smaller. The quality is fine. It's not going to win the quality awards. But this one here is really big but really big file size. So probably somewhere in the middle. Right, just find yours, go to 150 d. p. I and go to maximum see what the sizes. Another thing you might find is that if you don't have any images. Okay, so it's just block colors. Your file size is gonna be a lot smaller because it doesn't have to deal with all of these colors. If you've got hundreds of images, it's going to be even bigger than 1.4. Cool. So that my friends is how to save a jpeg from in design. Let's get on to the next video
