Chapter 7. Importing and Exporting > Applying Color to an Imported Graphic

Applying Color to an Imported Graphic

You can’t apply a color to just any imported graphic—but you can apply colors to bi-level (i.e., black-and-white) and grayscale TIFF images. To apply a color to an image, select the image using the Direct Selection tool, then apply a color as you normally would—probably by clicking a swatch in the Swatches palette (see Chapter 10, “Color,” for more on applying colors).

If you want the image to overprint any objects behind it, select the image using the Direct Selection tool, display the Attributes palette (if it’s not already visible), and then turn on the Overprint Fill option. You can use this technique to create duotones from grayscale images you’ve placed in a publication, as shown in Color Figure 7.
