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!
