Bitmap in Illustrator Not Working

New Here ,

I have an adobe illustrator file that has a bunch of bitmaps that I am using. I recently re-opened the file and now I can no longer change the color of the bitmaps in the file. Image trace is not working because it is not giving an acurate depiction of a file that was once crisp and clean. 

 

I can't find anything on the internet about this that is helpful. Has this every happened to anyone else?

After looking more, NONE, of my bitmaps are working in adobe illustrator. Just a few days ago I was having no problem. Super confused!

Are these .bmp files? The latest version has a problem with those.

Try resaving/replacing them as .psd or tiff or install an older version (27. x/AI 2023) to edit those Illustrator files. You do not need to uninstall the current version, you can have multiple versions installed.

I have had the exact same issue and thought it was my old iMac that was causing it. I've seen the reply below, so will have a go using an older version of Illustrator. Not really good enough when we pay a monthly subscription to use Adobe's latest products.

Thank you!  Stepping back to an older version of Illustrator - v. 28.4.1 - solved the issue for me.
