Lesson 7. Page Layout and Printing > Collecting for Output

Collecting for Output

The TIFF image you imported into your document is a linked image. As mentioned earlier, this means that a low-resolution preview of the image is imported into your FreeHand document. When you print your document, FreeHand sends the high-resolution image to the printer instead of the preview image. That works fine when you print from your computer, but if you use another computer to print your file, or if you send your file to a service bureau or a commercial printer, you need to remember to also send the external, linked file.

This document has only one linked file, so including this file would not be difficult. But what if you send your document to a printer a few months after you create it. Will you remember that it must include the linked file? Or what if your document contains several linked files that are stored in different locations on your hard drive or server? Will you remember to include those as well?
