Transparent background TIF not working anymore. InDesign adding white background fill.

For some reason, with the latest update of InDesign, transparent backgrounds don't seem to be working any longer. I'm not sure if this is an issue with Photoshop or InDesign.

 

I have a photoshop file that I am trying to import as a tranparent tif. (I've done this a thousand times before. The files I had before the latest updates all work fine. They came in as expected. No white backgrounds.)

 

NOW, I can't get a transparent background to work at all. The tif file is saved without any background (same as before). It looks exactly like the previous import but when I bring it into InDesign, suddenly there's a white background. This is so annyoing and I can't get rid of it unless I use clipping paths. Suddenly we've gone backwards again.  What the hell has changed? Why doesn't this work any longer? Anyone else having this issue?

Ah, I figured it out. There is an extra step now to "Select transparency" when saving images in Photoshop. So a tranparent image isn't tranparent now unless you check this off. Good grief! Every time there's an update, something that was working perfectly fine, changes.

 

Adobe, you guys are a bunch of Jokers! I love it when little things change in workflow. Especially when the pressure is on. Good Job!

Transparency has always been an option when saving TIFs in Photoshop for as long as I can remember!

This is a user-to-user forum, you are not addressing Adobe on here?

Re your issue, why don't you Place a native PSD file in your InDesign document?
