    Question: Is there a way I can set the resolution to the QR Code to 300dpi, or somehow verify what resolution it is?

    The reason I ask is because when I submit a book to Createspace, Createspace tells me that at least one graphic is below 300dpi and may not print correctly… if course I don’t get told what page that graphic is on, so I’m trying to rule out all possibilities.

    To the best of my knowledge, I believe that all graphics I have placed into the book are at least 300dpi in the PSD file (or is there a setting I need change to keep it at least 300dpi?).

    Thanks,
    Buck

    To verify, create a preflight profile in Indesign, checking the resolution of the images and set it to 300 dpi.
    Changing the size can be an issue for the effectif resolution.

    If you’re using InDesign’s QR code feature, then there is no resolution (they’re vector graphics, probably EPS).

    Here’s a free video I did on using Preflight for problem solving. It demo’s what Gert suggested above.

    Like David said, the low res problem is not the QR codes, must be something else in your doc.

    Hi everyone.

    Gert, thank you. Being new to print-media I am only just beginning to use the many features of Preflight… that was one feature I learned a few weeks ago and then promptly forgot.

    David, thanks good to know.

    Anne-Marie, excellent, thank you very much, that is very helpful.

    I found an additional area where I can verify dpi of images: the Link Info panel.

    This screenshot displays Actual PPI an Effective PPI:

    The issue I’m experiencing with Createspace may be on their end and not with my InDesign settings.

    Anyhow, thanks for the great feedback. It’s really appreciated.

    Have a great day.

    Buck
