How do you modify an image with a dpi less than 300? Is it just a matter of getting a photo with a higher resolution?

FunkyGuy586 says:

Great tutorials…Did HONDA give you any discount off a CBR125R for this?  They should!  😀

visal neang says:

Thanks for sharing I always follow your all sections which assist me a lots to improve my homework and skill but I still don’t understand why we need to change all image to CMYK in Indesign while other said it doesn’t matter to keep image in RGB for printing. Is that truth? and what will happen if all image doesn’t covert to CMYK? Hopefully to hear from you soon. Thanks

Quoc Anh says:

Thank you!

Thank you very much for these perfect tutorials

JackieBM5 says:

I am learning a ton from your tutorials! 🙂 I have a quick question at this moment as I learn by watching, then doing the practice, then implementation. However, from what I am seeing on your screen it looks different than mine. Are you using a Mac? I have a PC well, a windows 7 pro driven HP laptop. My version of Indesign is a black background with grey lines. The commands you are using, are they universal between Mac and Windows versions of the software or are they different?

Jimmy Zhi says:

i really appreciate your contribution to self teaching people like us! You taught us well 🙂


what a nice tutorial it is! Thank a lot brother.

Nate OConnor says:

Old Video and very helpful however the AI files Race Track and Honda logo are White so in the tutorial placing these images with white on white background is impossible just a heads up. I would Edit the AI files but there they are white on white also

Erin Bucci says:

I’m a complete beginner to InDesign and I’m learning so much from your tutorial. What an excellent resource! You mention that images can be also be embedded into InDesign as well as linked. Can you give me an example of a reason why or a situation when you would want to embed an image vs. link the image? Or the advantages/disadvantages to embedding?

Sofia Pacheco says:

Execellent tutorials I am learning a ton with you. However I have a doubt my images always appears despixelizated, I don’t nderstand. I have everything right 300 dpi…Thank you anyway for posting!
