    dropshadow object changes greyscale image

    jiggy1965 Level 1

      I've placed a greyscale image on my document. Nice dark and black in Photoshop and also in Indesign. Now I place a text frame onto it. Photo is still dark and black. Then I add a dropshadow to the text frame. Then the greyscale photo changes from dark and black to lighter and more grey?! Why is this happening. I would mind so much, but when I export the file to pdf, the photo is equally light and grey in the resulting pdf. When I deselect the dropshadow the photo returns to it's darker state and the pdf is equally dark.

       

      What could be the problem?
