Embedding Images

One way to prevent a link to an image’s document to failure is to remove it. This requires that the image’s document, which one the link is pointing, to be embedded within the target document. When you embed an image it breaks the link with the its original image’s document, with the disadvantage that you cannot update the image or detect any changes in it. Instead it isn’t necessary to package or acknowledge any fault if the original document it’s not found when producing a PDF.

Both Illustrator and InDesign allow you to embed an image into your document.

Indesign’ Links tab allows you to display a submenu and contextual menu offering the Embed image option.

You can embed an  image in Ilustrator following these three different metods:

  1. Through the Place menu at the top image, which supports the ability to embed the image’s document when importing it into the canvas enabling/disabling Links checkbox.
  2. The  button on the toolbar.
  3. The submenu from Links’ window, performance and appearance similar to that of InDesign.

Links checkbox remembers your state. It is therefore unnecessary to check it every time you place an image through the menu

Remember that after you embed an image you are no longer available to edit its original document or to update it.
