ArtOptimizer for Adobe Illustrator Now Supports Mac OS X Mountain Lion
August 6, 2012 in Publishing
[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is pleased to announce the release of ArtOptimizer 2.6.1, a compatibility update to its workflow automation solution for Adobe Illustrator. ArtOptimizer eliminates the excess image data of document links and performs essential image adjustments, thereby helping users reduce the size of Illustrator job, accelerate document output and cut production costs.
The new version makes ArtOptimizer compatible with Apple's new operating system, Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and introduces several performance and stability improvements. ArtOptimizer is a powerful automation solution, whether users target print, web or mobile devices. For example, with just a click of a button users can:
* Scale images to match their dimensions in Illustrator
* Change their resolution to 300 dpi
* Convert all RGB images to CMYK
* Merge layers or delete hidden ones
* Run a Photoshop Action on each image
In order to eliminate excess image data, ArtOptimizer automatically scales the images in Photoshop to match their dimensions in Illustrator, changes resolution according to the target resolution specified, and reimports images to Illustrator at 100%. As a result, the size of Illustrator links can be reduced dramatically - some images can shrink in size by half and more.
ArtOptimizer can dramatically benefit the workflows of service providers, printers, ad agencies and publishing houses:
* Save gigabytes of disk space
* Accelerate document output to printer and PDF
* Save endless hours - and even days - of optimizing images manually
* Save valuable time transferring jobs to outside sources
* Cut costs through faster processing
Pricing and Availability:
ArtOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix web site for $119.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. ArtOptimizer is available for Mac OS X 10.5-10.8, a Universal Binary, and works with Adobe Illustrator CS3-CS6.
