    Assuming there's no transparency, just drag the color from the swatch
    palette right onto the graphic.

    Hi Alan,

    Place your Grayscale tif into InDesign.

    Select the image, click on the swatch you want to apply to the image and should be all good.

    You have control over the tint and I think you can also apply blending modes to the frame that the image sits in. As in, you can apply blends to the image and the coloured frame.

    You've got to select the image with the direct select tool (white arrow).

    Thanks Bob. I guess I wasn't using the correct tool.

    AND, Nik, if you don't have anything constructive to say, butt out!

    Thanks,
