Why is the color of the overlay image (created in Graphic on iPad Pro, then exported to MacBook Pro as a png via email) so different from the larger page created in InDesign using that image with the "place" command?

You are viewing the .png in Apple Preview, which maybe using a different RGB profile for the display than InDesign. If the .png has no embedded profile it will get displayed in the InDesign document’s assigned RGB profile. You might want to stop using .png and save as .psd and include the RGB profile when you save. Use sRGB for web or screen projects

It’s because there is transparency somewhere on the InDesign spread and you have your Transparency Blend Space set to CMYK—set the blend space to RGB. Or, there’s no transparency, but you have Overprint or Separation Preview turned on. In either case the out-of-gamut RGB green gets previewed in the document’s CMYK space

Thanks for your suggestions. I made some adjustment based on those and I'm getting closer. Notice how both the pink and the green are still not as vibrant as in the original, but I'm out of options. I can find no obvious transparency issues. Is this "as good as it gets"?Screen Shot 2020-03-12 at 2.10.12 PM.png
