Ok, say I create a NEW PDF format file in AICS2. Throw some images in it and LINKING them...not embedding them. This way the file size will be smaller than embedding.
I save the file to PDF.
Lets say I move those images used in the file to some other location or another computer altogether.
Open PDF in AICS2...voilla... cannot find those images so I have to tell it where they are now. Fine and all.
OK... Prior to moving those linked images in trying to fool AICS2.... I open that same PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Pro 7.
Even though the link information is not in tact anymore in AICS2 because I moved the files. Why is it Adobe Acrobat can open this same file and the images appear? I am assuming they are EMBEDDED ALSO? Is AICS2 saving a embedded images also for linked images as a backup in case link data missing? The file size is still yet the same size...so what is going on?
AICS2 cannot find them (unless I tell them where I switched them to).... but Adobe Acrobat 7 displays them???
Must be also embedded? Even though initally linking them????
Reason for the PDF save instead of AI save, no redundant files, can also use this same file for distribution and do not have to create an additonal file that is PDF along with AI original.
