I could just cry....

I went to Kinkos last night after work to print up all of my portfolio pieces....only to find that every piece created in InDesign will have to be re-worked.

The reason?

The program doesn't save images the same way as other programs. If you move the image around on your computer (or Heaven Forbid delete I have done) the program file is immediately useless unless you re-link it to the original image.

Sounds easy, right?

Nope...some of those files were created nearly a year ago and finding some of them again on the internet will be a real challenge. I'd be easier off just finding new images and building on the old files. Chalk it up to a lesson learned while there wasn't an upset client waiting upon my results.

Guess I know what I am doing this weekend.

Ugh...sorry to hear that. I have had similar experiences in my life. I feel for you!

What a let down to find out you have lost all and how hard it is to rebuild. Wish I could help...Love DAD
