This is from the InDesign help file.  I think it explains what you're experiencing:

    When you place a graphic, its original file is not actually copied into a document. Instead, InDesign adds a screen-resolution version of the file to the layout, so that you can view and position the graphic, and creates a link, or file path, to the original file on disk. When you export or print, InDesign uses the links to retrieve the original graphics, creating the final output from the full resolution of the originals.
    Links can help minimize the size of a document by storing graphics outside the document file. After placing a graphic, you can use it many times without significantly increasing the size of the document; you can also update all links at once.
    If the bitmap image you place is 48K or smaller, InDesign automatically embeds the full-resolution image, instead of the screen-resolution version in your layout. InDesign displays these images in the Links palette, so that you can control versions and update the file whenever you like; however, the link is not necessary for optimal output.
    Note: If you move a document to another folder or disk (for example, if you take it to a service provider), be sure you also move the linked graphics files; they are not stored inside the document. You can copy all related files automatically, using the Preflight and Package features.

How do i download from iPhoto to a usb stick


hi Jo, if the size, quality, and the type of pic suits your needs do what kevin said, just copy, and paste it, but if the pic has to be altered to be compatible with the end use, do this
While in iPhoto bring up the pic you want to transfer, click on file (in the bar at the top of the screen) choose "export", it will give you the option to change size, type, name, quality, etc..
when your done click on the export icon, and if your flash drive is plugged in it will come up as an option ;-)

Downloading on mac A1181


Molly As it says the file needs an application to open it, what type of suffix does it have on it by this I mean does it have either .zip, .jpg, .doc, .exe or something else on the end of it. This would identify what application you need to open it. Do you know what the file is you are trying to download? If you could tell me what type of file it is I should be able to help you.

How do you import docx to pages


HI David. docx files open naturally in Pages - you don't have to import them. Right-Click or Control-Clickon your docx file and you'll get the contextual menu. One of the options is 'Open With".
Choose that and you should get offered Textedit as the first choice and Pages as the second. Choose pages and that is it. Hopefully all subsequent docx files will open in Pages, but in case they don't, single click on one of them., go to the file menu and select 'Get Info' Near ther bottom is the 'Open with' selector. reset it to Pages and then make sure that the box underneatch that says 'Open all docx files with Pages' (or whatever the exact wording is) is checked.

When i click on my JPEG pics they wont open


such jpg files need the original software when they were modified into a jpg format. like an adobe jpg or a corel draw jpg wont open in paint until the respective software is installed.
secondly jpg file has a header file and check sum , if the header file is missing or destroyed by a virus or already there is a virus on ones system the jpg files have to be isolated and treated for antivirus which reapirs the file and seperates the virus from the header maintaining the integrity of the file.try to isolate one jpg file and run a scan for virus on another computer, if the file gets repaired use the antivirus to repair your files
