Does this happen in all documents (and new ones) across the board? I know you said not 100% of the time, but possibly in old docs as well as new? Are there other items on the page possibly affecting the transparency of your images? My other suggestion might be to turn off the GPU performance option in Prefs and see if you still get that behavior.
Yes, this is happening to me too. I came here to find an answer.
When I move or resize an imagine within it's bounding box using the Direct Select (A) tool, the image "grays out" or becomes lighter. It does look like an opacity thing. It happens across the board on several documents - not all the time with every image, but frequently.
Hi brians / matt.steinruck,
As per your query linked picture color gets lighter after sometime.
In Addition to Erica's suggestion of turning off GPU also please try how it works with " High Quality " display performance.
Please do share your observations.

I have experimented with old files, new files, files with other images, files with just a single image. Seems to be repeatable across the board. But can't put my finger on exact circumstances. I could try turning off GPU Performance but as far as I know my machine should be able to handle it. I will turn it off and see how it goes.
Toggling between Typical Display and High-Quality doesn't seem to affect it. The only way I can get the issue to go away when it pops up is to just to just move the image around randomly on the page or within it's bounding box. Sometimes this makes the issue disappear, other times it does not and I have to delete the image and replace it. Also like @matt.steinruck said, it appears to be an opacity bug. But when the issue pops up, the image opacity is 100%–both the object and fill.
Hi brians ,
Thanks for raising this issue. Have you submitted this to our User Voice page Adobe InDesign Feedback ?
This is the best way of communicating to the Engineering and Product Management teams regarding issues and suggestions so they can be implemented in future releases.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Did you get this resolved? Did turning off the GPU perf option work?

No it did not. The only workaround I have figured out is that if the bug occurs, I can "Undo" and it reverts back to 100% opacity.
Just to reiterate, the image only appears to have been reduced in opacity. But viewing the opacity in the Effects tab shows 100%.

Please post a screenshot showing the error. It is difficult to suggest a possible solution without enough information.
what version on Indesign are you using?
Which OS are you using?
Does your machine has a gpu supported by InDesign? If yes then which one?
On which InDesign was the document created?
