Default InDesign embedded images convert to linked

Hello,
I am having problems when an image pasted into the InDesign document is automatically embedded rather than link.
Initially TIFF image is too large to paste so I reduce size and then paste into document with the intention once linked I can go to original higher files size.
However the image is being embedded therefore not showing in the Links Palette

Question is how to change an embedded graphic to linked so that i can have max resolution, or alternativly how can I be sure that Indesign will see TIFF and link

I, for one, would never paste the image. I always use File->Place (or ctl-D) to import the file to the page.
