    With Quark 6.5, I am able to take an image that is originally in colour and place it in grayscale in my document by holding the command key down while i click on "open" in the "get picture" dialog box.

    Is this possible in InDesign? I don't want to make a copy or convert my colour images in b/w since we have a huge database of colour-only photos.

    I think you are asking to replace the image inside the document. ":apple:D" thats place. It will replace whatever image you have in there keeping the same size and placement. Is that what you need?

    well I found a method on another forum which would work

    I'd normally do greyscale adjustments in Photoshop as it gives more control but I did a quick play and setting the new rectangle to black and then setting the effect to saturation it gives a greyscale image. Which method you want to try and use I suppose is upto you.
