Open the image in Photoshop.  Go to Image>Mode... and change it to 8 bits/channel there.

Hi Jim,

 

In "Image/Mode", it says that it already is 8bit per channel, as

it does in Media Info.

From Photoshop, save the image as a BMP file (or TIFF for Mac) and import the BMP file.

Hi Jeff, thanks!!

I guess one cannot import cannot import a CMYK image in Premiere at all.

When I inspected the image in Media Info it ID'd it as a YUV and so I assumed that the imagwe was converted for use in a video that they'd created sometime in the past.

Is there even such a format as YUV for still images? Probably not even though Media Info ID'd it as such.

Anyway, Photoshop ID'd it as CMYK and when converted to RGB that did the trick! 

Thanks!

Hi!!

I had the same problem. I tried to import a jpg file into a Premiere Projet without success. And you were right: the file that I was  trying to import was made in a CMYK mode. I have changed the mode and... voilà!!!, the file was imported without problems.

Thanks for your advice.

(sorry if my english is not so good )

your JPEG material might be CMYK. Just open first your jpeg mat in PS>MODE>RGB>SAVE AS>JPEG, then try to import in premiere, it will work!
