I've got a problem with photoshops shadow in InDesign. My PSD has a few layers and the last one (the lowest) is only in black with 75% opacity and with multiply in it. After placing psd file into InDesign the shadow isn't multiply with background. In created pdf I can see that background became lighter everywhere shawdow became darker.
Is there "normal-placing" method to import multiply attribute from photoshop?
Here you see what I mean. Left is wrong, right is goot (I placed 2 files, first without shadow, second without photo- only shadow). The right one is with second file selected as multiply in InDesign.
When I write about shadow from PSD I don't mean the shadow effect from InDesign. That effect is generated with whole picture, not only, for example, of bottom of the picture.
That is a long known issue and is due to the difference in the way the two applications handle graphics.
You’ll need to add the dropshadow in InDesign or create the shadow as a layer in Photoshop, place it in InDesign, duplicate the graphic and use the object layers options to set the blend mode.
I hoped that in InD v. 5.5 this is "fixed" and there is a simple way to do it... but nothing changed... maybe someday...
