It's pixelated like the second example horatio. Why do you ask?

comment What resolution do I need for images placed in InDesign?
Yeah...my 300 ppi image is probably corrupt... it doesn't happen with other images. What I was saying with the Photoshop Filter is not to insert information that isn't there, maybe CS20 will have magic tricks in the Filters menu, but after you resample and enlarge the image it naturally goes jagged and pixelated depending on how much you resize it, so a solution to that is to add a texture over the whole image so the jagged...pixelated stuff is not visible anymore. I know the best thing is too look for other images but in my case there are no other images... so I have to make a compromise

Another issue I have is with this one single image, its 1300 x 1000 px at 300 ppi, yupee!! but when I Place it in InDesign and then use right click then > Transform > Clear Transformations. Ends up being 312 x 240 px at Actual & Effective 300 ppi....and of course if I Transform it to make it bigger the effective ppi drops :(, which I now kind of undersant....but why is only 312 x 240 px in the InDesign file when the actual image file is 1300 x 1000 px ? why is InDesign so darn confusing...

OK... solution? what would you do if you had no other choice but 72 ppi images for an A4 Print ? I'm thinking resample and to get rid of small bad looking stuff on the image I'll add some sort of transparent texture...something like this Photoshop filter : featurepics.com/FI/Thumb300/20080425/… that is applied to this image...but maybe I'll find something better. I know this is like "bad practice" ... like Don't do it! But when you have no other choice you have to work with what you've got...

comment Strange annoying 1px line when I save a PDF from InDesign
I tried saving with the following Compatibility settings: Acrobat6(PDF 1.5) and the lines didn't appear anymore! Yupee! but as usually they would randomly appear(sometimes yes and sometimes no) I hope they will not appear again in the future...

My document width in InDesign is 799.96px and if I go to Acrobat > Propreties my doc size is 11.11 inches(why inches and not pixels ?) and if I measure the width of the PDF(100%) with Pixel Window my PDF width is 1066px ...

comment Why doesn't Size/Resolution in InDesign match the PDF?
A, sorry, I am not exporting with printer's marks... I am trying to save a PDF intented for web use(interactive) ... but no matter what kind of PDF I am exporting the same thing happens, everything is bigger in the PDF, so If I want to make a 30px box in the PDF(100%) my box in InDesign has to be 20px or something like that ...

So... the whole document if I set it from InDesign > View > Actual size looks smaller than the PDF at 100% ... i find it weird as I am used with Photoshop or Illustrator where everything looks the same and you can set a files resolution(DPI/PPI)... what am I not getting, how does InDesign Work ?

And another thing, in InDesign, if I go to View > Actual size, my box doesnt measure 30 px, the Height is set to 30px but if I measure it with Pixel Window its about 25px.... so how do you view a document in InDesign at 100% ??? I am very confused...
