Understanding Links

One of the benefits of using the File, Place command to import graphics is that a link is created for every graphic you place with this command. A link is an internal document reference to the location of the original file. If the placed file moves, the link can become broken.

Links are important because they help keep InDesign documents small while still retaining all the resolution and features of the graphics files you place. When a graphic is placed but a link is not created (for example, when you copy a graphic from one application and paste it into InDesign), a low-resolution proxy of the file is pasted and you may find it does not print or display the way you wanted.
