When you begin to place images inside of Adobe Illustrator, you're going to have…to deal with something called the Links panel.…In this movie, I am going to be exploring the Links panel, and exactly what it is,…and how it helps you work with bitmapped images inside of Illustrator.…I'm currently inside of Adobe Bridge, but you could simply open this file that…I'm about to open directly from Illustrator if you want to.…It's called missing_link.ai.…I am going to find it right here, and I'm just going to open it up.…When I open it up, you're going to see that I get a warning box telling me that…it could not find the linked file, missing_link.jpg.…
