Replace images (Designer) [Solved]

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if there is a links panel that shows you a list of all images, as in AI where you can choose one and then relink/replace it?

I do a lot of repetitive designs where all I do is swap out the image. When I searched the forums here, the closest thing I found was a request for Publisher beta, to add a links panel.

How do you replace images in AD?

Look through your document to find the image you want to replace, then click on it with the Move Tool to select it. You should see a "Replace Image" button on the Context Toolbar.

Thanks. It was right in front of my face the whole time. I'm not used to the context menubar compared to AI.

I did try finding this on my own via Help>Help... but when you search for replace or replace image. This was not in any of the results of the help documentation.

Thank you for this! I have about 60 replacements to make in a project. The good thing about this technique is that any masking, resizing, drop shadows etc will be kept from the old image and carries over to the new one. This saves loads of time! 

It would be nice if there was a batch facility where you could replace all of one image with a new one, AND have those replacements take on the previous tweaks and fx. For replacing logos this would save hours.
