Photoshop file to InDesign - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

I am trying to place a Photoshop file into an InDesign CS doent. I keep getting the warning that the Photoshop image was not saved at Maximum File Compatiblity even though I have that turn on Always in my Preferences. Any help would be appreciated, as I am a newbie....

    A "Photshop file"? As in .psd? You should save it as a tiff or eps to place it into InDesign.

    In the prefs inder file handling make sure maximize compatability is set to always.

    You may need to trash your prefs and reset eveything.

    But you should have no problem placing PSDs in ID I do it all the time.

    I haven't been using InDesign that long myself, but so far I have had no problems placing psd files in it either.

    Just curious: Will they place in InD without Max Comp? I mean like they do in AICS?

    Doug,

    I only have InDesign 2 and AI 8. I probably will update InDesign to CS, but I can't justify AI CS. Also, as I said in the other thread, I always have Max Com on.

    Right, I remember, Ramón. Just wondering if anyone knows about layered PSDs being link-placed in IDCS... because they DO link-place in AICS even without Max Comp on.

    Lydia,

    The Maximize Compatiblity setting is persistent for a file. If you initally saved the file without the composite (maximize compatiblity setting off), it will always save without the composite - regardless of the preference.

    Have you tried performing a Save As? If so, did the file place in InDesign?
