    I am having problem with Adobe Indesign when I'm importing images.
    Working on small project, like sell sheets is not problem at all, but
    working on larger file/catalogs is not possible to work.
    That's when I start with catalogs then I have problems. When I import images, Indesign started to crash.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    What kind of Mac, which version of InDesign?
    What kind of images are you trying to import? What file type are they?

    Why are you importing images into IE instead of placing them (or is that what you mean)? And to echo Blue Velvet, what version of everything are you running? How much RAM do you have, etc.?

    How much RAM do you have? How big are the files you are trying to bring into ID? What method are you using to "import" your files into ID?

    I really want to help you but you're not giving us enough information.

    It was actually one of the MAC machine from the company's ART department and it should have alot memory with it.

    The user told me she was loading the catalog from InDesgin, and she is mostly importing .PSD files which are less than 5MB on each file mostly.
    Sometimes the files are imported successfully, sometimes not.
    (such as imported 4 files, the 5th to 6th ones won't work, then 7th one will work again). So she has to spend extra time to import the ones unsuccessful.

    Sorry that I am not a MAC person (almost not much knowledge on MAC), please forgive me for not specifying things clearly here. We have other technician looking into the problem, but couldn't figure it out. thanks!

    You should be Placing (Command-D) the images in the layout, not "importing" them.
    I build multipage documents frequently in InDesignCS3 and have experienced no stability issues with placed PSD, TIFF, etc...

    Complete machine specs and installed OS would be good information to start with here.
