Export JPEG

Description

Exports the InDesign document or part of the InDesign document in JPEG format. Saving the selection creates a new file with the same dimensions as the selected objects’ bounding box. Multiple pages are saved as multiple enumerated files (e.g., if the file is saved as MyFile.jpg and there are three pages in the pages will be saved as MyFile.jpg, MyFile2.jpg, MyFile3.jpg).

Parameters

File Location Parameters

These parameters help tell Fuga where to save the JPG file. For more information, see the article on File Paths.

Path Field
(string) The absolute path, relative path, or file name for the JPG file. 

  • If the Absolute Path option is selected from the Directory Options drop-down: The Path field contains the absolute path for the new JPG file (e.g., “C:Documents:My Project:JPG files:MyProject.jpg”). To easily locate the absolute path, press the “…” button on the right hand side of the field to browse the folder and insert the file name. The file will replace any file with the same name.
  • If one of the Relative To options is selected from the Directory Options drop-down: The Path field contains the path relative to the new file. If the file is located in the top-level of the directory, this will be the file name (e.g., “MyProject.jpg”). If the file is in a sub-folder of the directory this will be the name of the sub-folder or sub-folders plus the file name (e.g., “JPG files:MyProject.jpg”).
