    Photoshop CC 14.1 Generator PNG issues when importing into indesign

    Rob Carroll Community Member

      Hi,

       

      I am very happy with the new generator feature in PS but I am having a problem when importing the generated .png assets into inDesign.

       

      The generated .png is not showing with a transparent background in ID even though when I open the file back in PS the transparency exists. When I resave the individual asset through save as web and reimport into ID it fixes the problem and the transparency is there. i have tested to see whether this was just a visualisation issue in ID however an exported PDF does not include the png's trans either.

       

      Hope this makes sense....

       

      Is this just a first release bug or am I missing something. It defeats the whole object of the feature if this is what has to be done to apply transparency to the generated assets.

       

      Apart from that this is a great idea of a feature and if this can be fixed will be a massive boost in productivity for digital asset creation.

       

      thanks
