I'm a novice Photoshop user... obviously... I've created a wine glass ring image using a brush, on a transparent background in Photoshop. I saved this file as a PSD. When I try to place this image in InDesign, even with the transparency option checked, it still appears with a white background. Do I need to convert the layer/image to something else? Thanks!
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.
