I have a few PDFs that seem to be monochrome/256 Grey. When I annotate them, in Preview, with colour, when the saved document is re-opened, the annotations are grey. Why?

Thanks for that. Actually the documents are JPEGS. :oops:

Exporting the annotated version as a PDF solves the problem.

Great to find that was the answer, though it boggles the ,ind a bit as to why JPGs would be that way!

Every photo has a color-profile. If the profile is grayscale, then the photo cannot accept color.

Thanks Gail, I guess I forgot a JPG could be grayscale.
