  I recently took over graphics for a small community magazine and have run into something I have never seen before.

  Rather than re-inveht the wheel, I took the .indd file from the previous print issue and began making changes. Many of the ads remained the same.

  Now, when I create .pdfs to check things, most of the materrial that stayed the same appears low res even though I am making print quality pdfs.

  I have done this many times before with other publications, simply replacing old info with new, and have never had this problem. Any ideas why I am now?

Did you check your Window > Links panel? Are the image links still intact, or do you see yellow triangles or red circles to the left of the page numbers?

  I realized that just a while ago. Is t here any way around that as it will be difficult for me to get in touch with the last designer?

That's definitely the problem and it turns out I do have the package for the document. 

 There used to be a way to automatically re-link if the files were on the same computer. Is that the case any more?

The default for a package is to re-link the graphic files. You may have opened a copy of the last issue which was outside the package.
