Adobe InDesign CS4 quietly added an enormously useful feature which allows you to link one folder full of images to another, including linking from one file to another with the same name, but a different file type extension. If you’re like most creatives, you probably build your initial layouts with comp images from Crestock, Getty or your favorite stock photo site. These comp images are typically low-res .jpg images. Once the layout is approved, you probably do a little retouching and manipulation to the images and save them as a .psd or .tif for output. This requires you to relink each image to the new file. And if those new high-res images aren’t in the same folder, it becomes even more tedious. If you’re using InDesign CS4, visit the flyout menu in the Links panel and select Relink to Folder… Here you can specify another folder on your drive to find the new images, and even tell it to link to the new .psd or .tif file. The best part is, you can have it relink an entire folder full of images at once. Nice! I hadn’t seen this feature mentioned anywhere, until this blog post at InDesign Secrets. Many thanks to them for sharing it!
