InDesign is the red-headed stepchild of the Adobe family when it comes to Save for Web. Photoshop and Illustrator both allow you to export a file to JPG, GIF, and PNG with a simple command from the File menu. Why not InDesign? Well, the truth is InDesign actually has a far more flexible workflow for exporting layouts for the web. It allows you to isolate independent objects such as graphics, images, and text frames and export just those elements—no slicing or hiding layers like those other programs. So what seems at first like a design flaw is actually a benefit for InDesign users.
