I'm actually pretty familiar with desktop publishing and most of the
time I create my own subfolders with images. In this specific case
though, I wanted to do a quick and dirty business card and no
publication and I wanted to reuse an image, I've been using before which
hence already is in some directory on my hard drive.
Anyways: with re-saving all the file in the new directory, it works
now... I do assume though, that as soon, as I move that directory from
my desktop to its final location, everything will again be screwed up.

Well, I'm over this anyway and right now am facing the trouble with
placing the created PDFs and exporting the document to PDF again.

Thanx for the advise, though, I appreciate it!
