Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with the Links panel, part of Introducing InDesign.
- In this movie, I'll introduce you to the links panel…which allows you to manage your placed images.…I'm gonna start by zooming in a little bit here…so that you can see in the top left corner…of each and every one of these Saturn images,…we have a tiny blue chain icon,…and that indicates that that image…is linked to a file on disk.…So, here's the idea.…When you place text,…InDesign embeds that text into the document…by which I mean that it places…each and every character into the InDesign file.…
The reason being that text is relatively small…and InDesign can modify the text on the fly.…By comparison graphics…especially photographic images are very large.…And so to keep things smooth and efficient,…InDesign links to the file on disk…so it doesn't have to place the entire file…inside the document.…And you can manage those links from the links panel.…To get to the links panel,…go up to the Workflow menu…in the upper right corner of the window…and choose the very first option Advanced…which provides us with a nice collection of panels…
