InDesign doesn't open photos. You place photos into it. File>Place.
As you are new to this program, I suggest reading some of the help files and getting a trial subscription to Lynda.com to watch some tutorial videos.
InDesign don't open any figures into it, but edit it in original program that was created, see it: Edit > Edit Original or Edit With.
If doesn't happen it occours because the compatibility of yours programs.
