What version of InDesign are you using? I’ve got CS3 and when I go to export and choose jpg, there is a small menu that pops up and there is a Quality area, a Format Method area and a Resolution area. In the Resolution area I can choose what res to make the jpg and 300 is an option.

You must have CS1 or 2? In my CS1 version there is not a simple way that I can see to make the jpg 300.

One solution would be to export your file as an eps instead and then open it in photoshop (if you have it), designate your resoluation, and create your jpgs from there. That way you can control the quality.

I’m a professional in graphic design and this is how we would probably do it. 

I hope that helps!

When you open the EPS in Photoshop initially, it will ask for the res you want bring it in as, so you’re not "making up" resolutions that aren’t there – it is actually the doc’s res size you’re setting!

This is really the best solution I think. I hope it works out! 

It would be difficult to email the files to someone with CS3 because you’d need to email all the links (the photos or images you’ve placed in the InDesign file) as well. You COULD do it, but it would be a bit of a hassle. 

Good luck!

Your only real option in InDesign CS2 is exporting an EPS and bringing it into Photoshop.


Why don’t you use the PDF option to export a print resolution file to print? You will get better results! Just remember to outline your fonts if you print somewhere other than your computer.
