    Photoshop will not relink files

    elizachristine Level 1

      Hi I am not really new to Photoshop, but am having difficulty with something just within the last week or two that I've never run into before.


      Every time I open an old photoshop file it asks me to update links that have not moved. After I update these it still shows that it is unlinked in the layers panel:

      I have also tried to "relink to file" and "replace contents" with the ORIGINAL FILE and this does not work. It solves it for a second and then goes back to having the red question mark.

      The only thing that seems to work is linking it to a Library Graphic, but not all of these are saved in my Library.


      The ONLY thing I have been doing differently lately is "placing Linked" files into my photoshop docs and creating new Libraries. (until a few weeks ago I did not utilize the library feature).


      Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is really slowing me down.
