Hi Toniko: You will need to let us know what kind of file you are trying to place in InDesign 2020.

Yes you are correct without knowing the type of file we cannot sort it out.

My appologies. The files are .jpg. I have tried .png, .pdf, .ai and they all work fine. Thank you.

Is its file type one of the supported types? See a list on https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/supported-file-formats-indesign-cs5.html (it says "CS5" but actually I don't believe the list has changed in the past decade – except for the very latest version, which added SVG).

 

Also, remember that changing a file extension does not magically make the file a correct type! You cannot rename a file from, say, "document.pages" (which would be an Apple Pages file) to "document.docx" and expect it to work.

My problem was solved by eliminating all special chars from the path. I also did uninstall/cleanup/reinstall, but I suspect that did not affect anything.

Download example to some dropbox/yadisk service and give us the link. Without file you can't expect real help in your question.

I have the same issue it is with a JPEG. I did not change the file type. There is clearly something else going on here. Can you please expand on these issues?

Hi Steinrueckn:

 

Are you able to open up the image in Photoshop? If so you can save it as a .PSD, or export it to a JPEG or PNG. Any of those formats can be placed in InDesign.

I'm having this exact issue. InDesign is up to date. Using a MacOS Mojave.

Trying to import an Excel spreadsheet into ID and I get this same error message. Please advise! 

Thanks 🙂

Try to save this file to some root folder without any special or non-latin character.

Has there been any other sort of resolution? I am having the same issue right now. I'm working on Windows 10, trying to place a PSD file into my InDesign document. Using the latest version of CC for all programs. I've also saved the PSD as a PNG and JPEG with the same problem ensuing.

 

Thanks!

Now the document won't open in PSD either... it's a PSD. It's now saying it's not a valid photoshop document.

I had the same problem, trying to place an image which was already in the indd doc on another page 😕  However re-saving the image with a shorter file name worked so maybe it was a server thing.

Had the same issue today with a PDF downloaded from the web. I opened the PDF in Acrobat, saved it on the desktop then dropped that version in which worked fine. I tried a couple of other PDFs and they worked so it must have been something in the file it didn't like 🤷‍:male_sign:
