Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring the updated Links panel, part of Illustrator: 2013 Creative Cloud Updates.
Another update that's now inside of Adobe Illustrator CS6 with a cloud update, is …the new, and improved Links Panel, which is going to remind you somewhat of the …Links Panel in InDesign. And so in order to bring this up you need …to go to the Window> Links. And that's going to bring up this new …Links Panel and when you first open it up it's not going to look a whole lot …different than the Links Panel did before but there is this small toggle option …here that you can use to show the link information and so you can actually see …the name of the link, what type of format it's in, the color space, the location of it.…
You can also click here to have it show you that file somewhere on your hard drive. …You can also see the PPI, the dimensions, the scale at which it's being shown right …now, the size, when it was created, when it was modified, and whether or not it is …transparent or has transparency in it. And so, this is some great information …that is available now in the Links Panel. And the rest of the links panel works …
