Hi,

I am posting on behalf of our Marketing dept. They use Canto DAM as their image management tool. When they go to export an Indesign produced magazine they are required to manually select all the images, which could be 100, that need to be converted to high resolution. Does anyone know of a way to do a select all? Apparently this does not occur if the files are stores locally on their computer.

Your question is not at all clear.

What do you mean they have to select the images? Export the InDesign magazine to WHAT? PDF? Some other format?

They export to PDF or the entire INDD file package to the printer.

 

They are required to right click on each photo and select covert. Would prefer a select all of some kind. Only seems to happen with this Adobe-Canto connector.

 

Like I said, I am asking for another dept. so if the info seems unclear, my apologies.

I'm curious why they need to swap out images? This was common 20 years ago but not today.

My understanding is that a low res (compressed) verison of the image is used during creation/editing of the document and the high res is inserted when the final exported copy is created. I am not clear if this is a function of the indesign/canto connector.

Like I said, that is something I would have expected 20 years ago but not something that InDesign is going to do automatically.

Your colleagues might get more out of this by coming here and giving us full details of their workflow.

thanks. this what they had sent me:

 

When we create our flyers, it could have over 300 images (high resolution for print including product and beauty images). We desperately need a "select all images" to convert the low res images to high res images for when we send to print. Currently this has to be done individually. This is not efficient at all, it take a long time and could cause errors.

 

I will see if I can get more details.

Keep two seperate folders containing the publication images. One low rez, one high rez. When the publication is finished, close the document and re-name the lo-rez folder. Re-open the document and Indesign will ask to re-link. Manually re-link to the high-rez folder. You only have to re-link one file; Indy will automatically find the rest.

Hi Kevin,

can you show two screenshots of that tedious process for one single image?

 

One with the image selected and the menu action you have to do.

The other one after you did the menu action.

 

Also show the Links panel with the two screenshots so that we can see what happens to the placed image name and further details like Effective PPI and so on.

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

The issue still exists. The feedback i received on the idea to keep two separate folders was:

 

That doesn’t work because it assumes the files are local to our hard drives or servers. The photos need to be grabbed out of Canto’s platform.
