    Copy and paste transparency from Photoshop to InDesign

      Hi all, I've recently started to learn InDesign and I was surprised to realize that when I'm simultaneously editing images in PS and pasting them to ID, it doesn't paste transparency, it always adds a white background in the box frame of the object. the problem can be solved if I go onto clipping path and select Detect edges or if once I cut out the object on PS I save it as a .tiff file.


      This only happens on a Windows computer, because I've used InDesign on a Mac and when I cut the background out of an image in Photoshop, and paste it onto InDesign, the transparency is automatically detected, without me having to create a clipping path.

      Is there a way to make it automatic for InDesign to detect transparency when copying and pasting objects from Photoshop?
