in Publishing (E)

[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is pleased to announce the release of LinkOptimizer 4.6, a feature update to its popular workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 starts 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.

"For those wanting to quickly optimize their images and cut down on processing time, LinkOptimizer is a very smart choice," concludes Computer Arts.

The new version introduces selective layer processing letting users ignore or process images on specific layers of InDesign document.

LinkOptimizer is a powerful automation solution, whether your target is print, web or mobile devices such as iPad. It works automatically with Adobe Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert 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 a Photoshop Action on each image

At the end of processing, LinkOptimizer will reimport images to InDesign at 100% in their precise position. In addition, the software can apply sharpening filters, merge layers and delete hidden ones, and process copies of InDesign documents and links instead of original files. The resulting savings of disk space, time and resources can be dramatic:

* Save gigabytes of disk space
* Accelerate document printing and exporting
* Save endless hours - and even days - of optimizing images manually
* Reduce job turnaround drastically and cut costs through faster processing

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 (USD) as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 4.x users and $98.78 to upgrade from previous versions.
