You can still do that - I did it on a project just the other day, but I use greyscale Jpegs, you could try that file format?
I KNEW it would be an easy answer. Ugh. THANK YOU.
you still can work with grayscale tif images and color them. At least you should be able to…
I tested this with a sample tif graphic and InDesign CC 2017.
Don't know, if that matters:
Recently—around June 2016—with CC 2015.4 there was a bug with bitmap (not grayscale) images with version 22.214.171.124 that was later fixed where the color was not visible. That bug was fixed in August with the release of InDesign CC 2015.4 v126.96.36.199.
So what is the exact version of InDesign you are seeing this issue? What is your OS version?
To get that information go to "About InDesign" while holding the cmd key when on Mac OSX.
alert( "InDesign-Version: "+app.version );
