My laptop hard drive is almost full and I need to relocate my library of photos and movies. I'm considering moving everything to a cloud storage system such as IntraLink VIA or SpiderOak. I use a MacBook Pro Retina and only have limited connections, most of which are used by my Apple Cinema Display and external hard drive for the Time Machine backup. So, I believe cloud storage would be my best solution.
However, I do not want to relink every graphic in every InDesign file that I've ever created once I move the pictures out of my laptop Pictures folder. Having made this mistake before, I know what a pain this can cause.
Is there any way that I can relocate all of my pictures and movies, etc. without needing to relink everything?
Thanks in advance if you can save me a LOT of trouble.
Sorry, when you move linked assets you have to relink them everywhere where they have been linked.
I would also recommend to package (File > Package…) every InDesign project when it is finished. This will create an INDD with related link folder as copy which you might save on a different place. Then you can delete the original, the package should be saved on a different place for archive. Moving the original assets will not have any influence to your INDD.
Thanks for the tip. That will definitely save some time.
