Best practice for replacing original images in PDF exported from Indesign

Recommended Posts

Preliminary: This just a best practice if the workflow is totally controlled by you, means if you want to switch from Indesign to APublisher you should have a copy of Indesign and / or all the original images. I am talking here about cropped / trimmed / rotated images in the original layout.

State-as-is Replace Image: Replacing the image could be quite easy, but often (in my case) when I want to replace an embedded image in the document with the original image the position, orientation or the clipping is wrong.

Best practice Replace Image: If you want to ensure, that position, orientation and clipping is correct, when you replace the original image, make sure that trimming image data to frame is not checked when you export the PDF from Indesign. This option can be found (ID CS6) on the compression page of the export dialogue. With this unchecked, the replaced image will perfectly fit to the right place. I bet nearly everyone has the trimming checked to make the PDF smaller.

I hope this "tutorial" is of help to some of you.

Not a suggestion, not a request, too trivial for Tutorials, so I was running out of options. Where is the best-practice-forum when you need it? ;)
