We do several pubs. One of them is "Star Wars Insider" magazine. The designer for this magazine is very talented, and pretty much production oriented, except for two things:
He designs pages (in InDesign) with placed images scaled to 25% or even smaller. And he does not crop his images. So I end up with a 2-page InDesign file that is 40+ megs because all of the linked images are huge. I've been around since the days of 20MB hard drives, and this just makes me nervous.
He upsamples with impunity. If he receives an image (usually from Lucas) that is not large enough for his purposes, he thinks nothing of upsampling it in Photoshop. He won't scale it in InDesign because he knows we will yell at him. But if he upsamples it in PS before he places it, then we don't know. Until I try to retouch and start seeing artifacts all over the place.
Should be break his arm(s) to force him to size and crop his BIG images to keep our file sizes down?
What are the rules for resampling? In my world, the rule is: DON'T. Am I wrong?
