Thanks for looking over this for me.
Apologies I did mean to say PPI, not DPI.
As for the use of InDesign, I found this much easier to create the graphics required. I will find this hard to explain but I will try my best. I use InDesign as its really effective at creating what I need. Using the frame/pen tools I create composite graphics using shapes that have a textured effect background. Colour is then added on top of this texture in Indesign that makes it a brand colour I need to use. This is done very simply and using Photoshop is very over-complicated and long-winded to do so. Especially where multiple shapes and background textures have been used that need to remain editable.
Again using the frame tool, in InDesign I can drop assets such as high res images, scale them, place and duplicate very quickly. I can repeat this process multiple times very simply. This takes far longer to do in Photoshop.
I create more complex documents that do require typesetting and better text options than Photoshop so simply keeping to the same software for all uses is really handy for a quick workflow.
The company I work for primarily use Indesign as the main software to edit/create documents with design elements so sticking with this software is not just professional preference but required for ease of accessibility by other colleagues.
Going back to the image quality issue exporting from InDesign, though I get the feeling this just isn’t an option I should be going with, I see no other route. I’ve attached a screenshot of the export options I’m referring to, If I have set the document to the dimensions I need the end piece to be at i.e 1200 x 630 px and increase the PPI the actual dimensions of the image will of course increase in size. This is no good to me, so the PPI needs to be set to 72. This remains at the document dimensions but the resolution is awful.
Apologies for the long-winded reply however its quite an issue for me and I’m keen to learn from the more experienced how best to proceed.
