    Place CC PSD file in to InDesign

    Steven Edney Level 1

      I have been trying out CC this afternoon and came to a problem when I try to place a PSD file saved from Photoshop CC in to InDesign. I have both InDesign CS6 and CC installed and the same issue occurs with both, so I think it is a problem with the PSD file. Compatability mode is ON.

      When I try to place a JPG or PSD file from previous photoshop versions it works as normal.

      The actual issue is that sometimes the object frame just appears as a purple box and other times it won't place in to the document at all... anyone else experiencing similar problems.

      Running on OS X 10.8.4

          Can you describe what is in the psd file?

          Color depth? Color space?


          Can you provide us with screen shoots.

            Hi Willi,

            I just did a few more tests today and it seems that the problem is actually with my image file - it seems to be corrupted. It was a an iStock jpeg file which I did some changes to in Photoshop and saved as PSD.

            When I did the same things using PS CS6 and then tried to place in to InDesign I got the same problems...

            I use Photoshop and InDesign almost every day and rarely get such problems - so when it happened yesterday after upgrading to CC I immediately jumped to the wrong conclusion!
