When I place images in my indesign file, they show up with noise or black. I have checked the original files, and tried saving them as new files as well. My initial document also has placed images that are previewing correctly. However, post the 200dth page, they are showing up as black or with noise like they are corrupt. I have checked the original files. Please see below screenshot.
Have you tried to place those images to a new document? Which file format you are using in your images. I have experienced same kind of problems with EPS-files. You can also try to change your Display Setting to High Quality.
What happens if you select Ctrl+Alt+H (Win) or View>Display Performance>High Quality Display?
great, thank you so much
Thanks a million, Sisham. You've just saved my day.
You're an absolute legend!
Turn off GPU performance in your preferences.
what is GPU ?
The GPU is turned off. it is set to display high quality. I place this .png file into a new indesign document. it appears like this (the pic to the right) the pic on the left is how it should look. This is one reason why i don't like upgrading. it consumes so much time.
Do you have another file type than PNG? Much better is to use the original vector AI file.
I am having the same problem-- certain images showing noise/greyed out/staticy/glitchey like the original post, however, I tried turning the gpu on and off and it did not change anything. Some of the images are fine in the working document and become noise only when I select high quality display or do the document preview (i.e. they only show up when low quality) Others are always fine or always noise.
Is it because the links are on an external hard drive? None of the links are broken. Any ideas?
I have exactly the same problem periodically. Thought it was the external hard drive but packaged the file and opened from the desktop and still have pics full of noise!
David, see my comment (below). Try relinking everything to the files on your desktop.
What file type are you using?
jpegs and eps files.
I ran into this problem with a file I'd been working on that was originally on an external hard drive. That got too scary, so I moved everything over to my main computer (the cloud), and suddenly my images went all weird, just like this. The reason? They were still linked to the images on the external hard drive. When I relinked to the images on my main computer, everything showed back up. Go figure! But glad I could fix it!
