Create Previews for Missing Images in Adobe InDesign via MarkzTools2

You can create previews for missing images within Adobe InDesign (INDD) documents, by using Markzware‘s standalone application, MarkzTools2:

Many printers, publishers, and graphic artists often need to check Adobe InDesign file content repeatedly, throughout the day. To be productive, these professionals need a fast method that allows users to get a quick peek at their content. An application could help to give you a better idea of what is in your INDD documents, especially when you’re creating different versions of the same content.

Markzware develops and provides state-of-the-art, award-winning conversion tools and other software for InDesign users. MarkzTools2 is a program that allows you to create an IDML from an InDesign document, using a simple drag and drop, without having to run InDesign.

Want to get an idea of what your missing image files contain in InDesign? See how, in this MarkzTools2 demonstration video:

With Markzware’s MarkzTools2, you can create low-resolution image previews. No need to look at gray-tinted placeholder boxes!

Benefits of Using MarkzTool2
• is a stand-alone application, so it does not require additional conversion software, to convert InDesign.
• can convert multiple versions of InDesign to IDML.
• allows “green” collaboration through digital files, rather than using paper.
• is very fast. (It takes less time than for InDesign to send your document to a server and return an IDML.)

Markzware offers MarkzTools2, a flexible document conversion solution, as part of its branded offerings. MarkzTools2 provides an option that lets you choose or create the folder in which MarkzTools2 creates the IDML.

How to Create Previews for Missing Images in Adobe InDesign, using MarkzTools2:
When InDesign opens an IDML which references an image that cannot be located, it creates a gray tint box as an image “placeholder”. To create low-resolution previews for these images, select the “Create Previews” option. The preview files will be created in a sub-folder named “Links”, so you can easily locate them and update the placeholders.
