Hi Everyone! I have been using InDesign for a while now and never had this problem before. When I import a JPEG, suddenly all my colors are changing into less bright colors. Same thing happens when I want to apply a Drop Shadow for example. I've tried multiple colour settings, also synchronized my settings in Bridge. Besides that I tried to change my jpeg tot RGB of CMYK colors, that doesn't help either.

 

Any help appreciated!

If there is any transparent object on a spread the document’s Transparency Blend Space is used to preview the page. If the blend space is set to CMYK, RGB colors will preview inside of the document’s assigned CMYK space. The same will happen if you turn on OverPrint Preview—the preview will be the expected CMYK output color when the RGB colors are converted to CMYK.

If your InDesign is set to CMYK and not RGB that could be causing the change in vibrancy.
