Once in a while when I place images into my InDesign document, the Photoshop clipping paths hide content in InDesign. Is this an incompatibility issue or is there a setting I need to turn on or off to make the whole image show—and print—from InDesign?

 

InDesign applies embedded Photoshop clipping paths by default. As you place each image into your document, InDesign uses the embedded clipping path to mask its background, which causes InDesign to mask your images. To display your images fully, you need to prevent InDesign from applying the embedded clipping path.

 

To place an image into InDesign without embedded clipping paths:

1.       In InDesign, choose File > Place to display the Place dialog box and select an image file to import.

2.      Select the Show Import Options check box, as shown in Figure A.

4.      Deselect the Apply Photoshop Clipping Path check box on the Image pane...
