"How may I Select Multiple Links for Re-Linking ”

Looking to perform "Select Multiple Link Replacement”

 
Right now I can Re Link Parent Link (of ALL Instances) and change 1000 instances of an image.
 
Right Now I can Relink ONE individual “Child” instance or ONE image at a time.
 
But I cannot SELECT and RELINK Multiple Selected Links (example: 10 out of the 1000) SELECT instances of an image.
 
The only way to presently do this is to highlight the 10 instances and then Relink them one by one where a dialogue box opens and requires me to repeat the link process and click OK all 10 times.  This is a time suck and there must be a better way!
 
Do any of you know of a solution to allow me to SELECT and RELINK only a SELECT GROUP of multiple links and have only these instances relink without having to sit and repeat the process for each link individually?
 
Do any of you know of a script to accomplish this?
 
Is there a way that can be done without a Script?
 
I hope you can help.
 
Thank you!!

No clean way, natively, that I'm aware of. You could probably finagle a script that could execute the Copy Info For Selected Links menu action to a temp file/frame, read that data to refind the links in the document and execute the relink, but I don't believe any such script exists currently and it's not exactly a trivial task.

There's an option under the Options menu of the Links panel that should work. 

  1. Put all of your replacement images in a different folder than the original images.
  2. Select all listings in the Links panel you wish to replace.
  3. Under the Options menu of the panel, choose Relink to Folder, find the new Folder and press Choose.

As long as the new images have the same names, this should work fine.
