While @Takkat's answer is correct and should work for you, I have one step method which I prefer: Use the Curves tool (Colors->Curves), select the Alpha Channel, and simply drag the curve so that it is an horizontal line at the top. All Alpha information is mapped to "1" (full opacity). The effect may, of course, be achieved by the levels tool as well, ...

For my answer I need a little preamble. In GIMP as well in other editors the images can have a specific channel named Alpha channel, so named from a process called alpha compositing, used to create the appearance of partial or full transparency.

With the eraser tool we will replace pixel color information with alpha transparency in case there was an alpha channel (or background color if no alpha layer was defined).

If there is a layer without transparency set in the Layers panel (it happens when some transparent layer was merged with any other) there's really no way you can find it's alpha property. But Joonas makes a good point, you can duplicate the layer X times till it gets 100% opaque and calculate the approximate alpha on your own.

This should work. When you create a new PSD file, select 'Transparent' in the 'Background Contents' field in the new file dialog box. Then save as a psd. Also, in InDesign, are you copying and pasting it from Photoshop? That would create a background color. Within InDesign you would need to 'Place' (File > Place) the psd file in the InDesign file.

I think you might be better off using a black icon and reducing its opacity to 50%. Or, perhaps use solid #6d6d6d as opposed to what you seem to be using (#858585).
