Does it still export at the correct quality?
Is the original file still linked?
It did the first time - I exported it to PDF and it worked fine. But when I re-opened it and the quality was reduced, exporting it to PDF also has poor quality in the image.
It's almost like InDesign has forgotten the quality of the original image since I previously opened it. If I re upload the image, it solves the issue. But I don't want to have to do this (nor have time to) every time I edit something on the document..
Thank you for your help.
The second question: Are the links still showing as up-to-date in the InDesign links pallet?
They are out dated - but I haven't moved the image from where it was originally, when it had been working fine.
Is there a way of updating it without reloading the image, as I have to make frequent edits and it takes a lot of time to do this every single time? The image hasn't moved, so I don't understand why InDesign is forgetting the link to it.
The problem I have with this though is that it is really time consuming - I'm having to update many images and have to determine exactly where their location is (I know it's not changed location, but finding exactly which folder and which image takes time). Is there not a way of forcing InDesign to use the original image, so I don't have to re-link every time? I'm sure there was a much simpler way of doing this, that I've done before, I just can't remember
You put all your images in one folder and when you relink one image it relinks all of them.
Thank you for your response.
Unfortunately that takes so much time to do for so many documents - they are saved in different places over several years and I'd have to go back and relocate every single one. It's really frustrating that there is a way of just restoring the original quality of the images without having to re-link every one.

You make a mistake with the Indesign file and the link up images. When you are working in Indesign you have not do in a proper way so now are in trouble but you have to search all the link images and keep it in one folder and relink one of image automatically it update all the links..
So collect all the images in one folder along with your indesign file and update one image.
...way of just restoring the original quality of the images without having to re-link every one.
The image that you see in InDesign is just a preview - the quality of the image is stored in the actual image file. Without the link, all you get is the lower-res preview.
