Exporting JPEG

The best way for someone else to see a page from your document if they don’t own InDesign (or you don’t want to give them your InDesign file) is to export and send them a PDF file. However, a JPEG image of your document page often works just as well—and not only is a JPEG file usually much smaller than a PDF, but it’s also much easier to view (any Web browser can display a JPEG, file, but not everyone has Acrobat Reader). Of course, a JPEG file is a bitmapped image, so whoever you send it to can’t really zoom in on the file.

InDesign can export a JPEG file of any page or object in your document—you can even export a series of JPEG files for more than one page at a time. To export a JPEG file, choose Export from the File menu and pick JPEG from the Format pop-up menu. The Export JPEG dialog box is pretty simple (see Figure 7-17). You can control which page or pages you want to export (use commas and hyphens to type ranges of pages). To export one or more objects from a page or spread, select them before choosing Export and then turn on the Selection option in the dialog box
