I recieved an INDD file that someone created using InDesign CS5.5. The file contained text and images. I made some alterations to the text in InDesign CC and sent it back to the InDesign CS5.5 user as a IDML file. When they opened the file, the text changes were visible to them, but the images that were in the original CS5.5 file were missing. I did not have the original image files that were in the document as the CS5.5 user only sent the INDD file.
Is there a way that I can make updates to the INDD file and deliver an IDML file without images being altered? As I type my situation out in this post, I am wondering if I need the original image files despite the fact that the document was originally created by the CS5.5 user.
Any input that you can provide will be greatly apreciated. Thank you.
IDML never contains the images. It contains references to the images.
The images aren't altered. The person who sent the file to you needs to relink the images to the InDesign file in the Links panel.
