I purchased a piece of art, as I often do, and dragged the PNG into my illustrator file.  Normally I do this, I embed the file, and it looks fine.  This time, however, I the art is grey noise.  Anyone have any tips?

Below is a screenshot of what is happening, as well as what the art looks like for reference.

What is the color profile and bitdepth of the file?

What happens if you resave the file in Photoshop?

Elizabeth,

Undoubtedly irrelevant, but if you have switched to GPU Preview (lately) you may try Ctrl/Cmd+E to get (back) to CPU.

Heatwave over, Ton?

I have the same issue at time. Works if you change the png from 16bit to 8bit. Although, I have other pngs that are 16bit and work fine.
