Running Vista and CS3. I have downloaded a logo from a client that is a blue rectangle with reversed out type in the middle. The image is a JPEG but at full size looks fine displayed in Photoshop CS3 and is showing a ppi as a little over 300. And yet when I file>place the image into InDesign the type comes out completely pixelated to the point of not even being readable. I’ve tried saving it as a PSD and TIF but they all still show the same pixeled type. It seems like I’m missing something simple but I’m at a loss. Can anybody suggest what would cause this? Thanks for your help.

ID is showing a lowrez preview change the setting to hirez in ID. this may slow things down. Also 300ppi is pretty coarse for type unless its really big type. logos are usually made in illustrator so they remain vector.

is a blue rectangle

….and as a JPG with probably no color management, expect a color shift when you print.

See if you can get the logo as a vector graphic with correctly defined color.
