I am creating a practical guide book with images. I am currently using Scrivener which is writing software for the edit stage. I need to include images into the text, but I will then pass over my draft to a layout designer to layout out the project in Indesign. Should I bother putting full size images into Scrivener, or should I just put placeholders in and then hand over the full size images to the designer?
Use placeholder images in the text. Then deliver full size images with the text to the designer.
Some applications can down-sample placed images. I don’t know whether Scrivener does. It is generally safer to always send full size images separate from any text. This avoids any possible resampling issues.
