I have been producing a brochure over the last couple of days and all has been fine with placing my images but yesterday afternoon when I tried to place a new image, the image becomes transparent and all I can see is the outline of the image and the other content on the page can be seen within this outline.
I have tried to restart indesign a few times, have looked into the different settings on the flattener preview, have changed the display performance settings, any other suggestions would please be more than welcome!
If the image is from Photoshop with a clipping path, open it in Photoshop and examine the path. What you describe sounds like something that has a clipping path made from a selection of white space around an inner object, but the selection was not set to inverse before converting to a vector path. Instead of clipping out the white area surrounding the center item, the item was clipped. Just a guess, but have a look.
Thank You I have figured that out for myself now and your guess is correct! The person that sent me the images had just saved the path, not the whole image. All sorted now
