Hi, I would like to white out the background of a tiff image (greyscale) in InDesign. In QuarkXpress there is an option to select the background of the image on/off (color=none), so WHITE in the image has removed (see xpress.jpg). In InDesign I don't see such an option, so the backgroundcolor stays WHITE. (see indesign.jpg). Can Someone tell me if there is an option for this in InDesign?

No. Open it in Photoshop and do it there.

 white out the background of a tiff image (greyscale) in InDesign.

 

If you convert the grayscale to Bitmap Mode (Black & White) in Photoshop, you can set the parent frame’s fill to [None] and the bitmap to a color:
