Image Color Adjustment? - Adobe Indesign Windows

Hello, I've been working with some scripting in InDesign CS, but am still learning many of the tools and functionality of the software. I was wondering if InDesign has color correction/adjustment capabilities for working with individually placed graphics? Something similar to Photoshop, like Curves or Color Balance? I looked through the InDesign help some, but haven't found anythying yet. Thanks, Scott...

    Default Image Color Adjustment?

    Hello,

    I've been working with some scripting in InDesign CS, but am still learning many of the tools and functionality of the software. I was wondering if InDesign has color correction/adjustment capabilities for working with individually placed graphics? Something similar to Photoshop, like Curves or Color Balance? I looked through the InDesign help some, but haven't found anythying yet.

    Thanks,

    Thanks. So, this means that all image and graphics color must be set before importing into the InDesign pages. I assume, then, that global color corrections (those affecting an entire page or doent) are also not possible, unless it involves some kind of color management with an ICC profile?

    While it is not versatile color adjustment, you can always add a colored shape above or below a photo and use InDesign's transparency palette to tweak the blending.

    This is an absolutely terrible idea, for many reasons.

    While it may not be the best idea in all situations, I would not disqualify it as terrible. Adobe uses this technique in the training/promotional materials for InDesign CS.
