I've before noticed font rendering problems when an embedded/linked image is present, but I believe they've always resolved themselves on Export. While annoying during program use, I'm just glad they don't cause any production issues!
But I can't ignore my current problem because it's throwing my colors way off and roughing up text - even when exporting to PDF! Basically, if there is a raster image in the document (linked or embedded) the colors on just that page all become less 'bright'.
It's not as obvious in the screenshots below, so here's a link to the PDF: http://saganites.com/hosted/colorissues.pdf
I JUST realized while creating that link that Google Chrome's PDF viewer does not display the incorrect colors, only when previewed with Adobe programs (InDesign and Acrobat so far).
Any ideas? Other comments about what menu to play with when experiencing display issues?

If I convert the image to CMYK in Photoshop and relink in InDesign, can I avoid this issue?
Depends what you mean by avoid the issue. What you are seeing is the difference in gamut (the range of colors that can be produced) in RGB and CMYK. If going to print, you are going to lose the brightness anyway on most devices due to a smaller CMYK gamut, but if for screen you really want o leave the images in RGB.
Doing the conversion at output is also more flexible in terms of re-usability of the file and images. CMYK conversions are for specific output conditions, and once you lose color you can't get it back.
