Zevrix Updates LinkOptimizer for InDesign - New Color Conversion Options
December 20, 2010 in Publishing
[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is pleased to announce the release of LinkOptimizer 4.5, a feature update to its popular workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks allowing to significantly reduce the size of InDesign job, save processing time and reduce production costs.
The new update adds the ability to convert image color space to an ICC profile space in Photoshop, giving users much greater accuracy of color conversion, with full control over how the conversion is done. Previously, only conversion between color modes was possible.
"LinkOptimizer makes me extremely happy!", says Nynke Tiekstra, the owner of design studio ColtsfootMedia in Friesland, Netherlands, "It converted 10000 images in a 1800 pages project saving us at least 40 hours work, and it proved to be 100% accurate."
LinkOptimizer is designed to meet the needs of ad agencies, prepress bureaus, printers and publishing houses. The software works automatically with Adobe Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert various image formats. For example, with just a click of a button users can:
* Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
* Change their resolution to 300 ppi
* Convert all RGB images to CMYK
* Resave all JPEG images as TIFF
* Run Photoshop Action on each image
At the end of processing, LinkOptimizer will reimport images to InDesign at 100% in their precise position. As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.
