Hi there,

I understand that unlinked images can appear blurry when they are exported from and .indd file to .PDF. The issue is, I have my art book with hundreds of linked images and I would have to download them and all re-link them to this file... Which I would be fine spending 6-7 hours doing, but I own the business that puts the art on apparel and that would be next to impossible with the current amount of time I currently have. Is there is any other way to solve this? Please help!

If you are exporting as an Interactive PDF, you can set Image Handling to lossless compression, High or Maximum JPEG Quality, and 144 or 300 ppi resolution. These settings are found on the Export To Interactive PDF dialog.

Hi,

Please confirm your Operating System and current version of InDesign in case it helps us support you better.

There is a clever bit in InDesign. If you have all the images stored in one folder, when you relink the first one, InDesign will check if all the other missing ones can be found in the same location, thus relinking it all in a flash. If you are missing images (originals) then, of course, the re-linking will not happen.

You might have to relink the first image, if it doesn't detect all the other missing ones > Save your file, close it and re-open it. A message will prompt you to re-link automatically to the missing pictures and find them in that central folder.

Let us know if that worked for you.

Same folder as in same mother folder, or one big folder? The art is organized in to a different folder for each piece underneath a mother folder named "Artwork," but has not been all transferred to the Mac yet...

The images are linked, but you still have to download them? Where are they stored?

Drop them into a subfolder labeled "Artwork" as Eric mentioned; link one and the others will automatically relink (as long as the name has not changed from original placement).
