Hi! I've recently had a few issues with InDesign when adding an image. It seems to vary depending on images - i.e. some JPGs and PNGs have no issues, and others do. Issues include - jagged text, desaturation of other affected images. Small example attached. 

 

Looking to find the issue, I was comparing JPGs with issues vs. no issue JPGs in image properties, and I did notice that the ones without problems have a bit depth of 24, while the ones with issues have a bit depth of 32. 

 

Is there an explaination for this / setting / fix for this issue? Any information is highly appreciated.

The color change is likely because the PNG is adding transparency to the page and that invokes the document’s Transparency Blend Space, which by default is CMYK. Try setting your Edit>Transparency Blend Space to RGB.
