[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions has announced the release of LinkOptimizer 4.7.12, 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 links, save processing time and reduce production costs.
The new version improves conversion of multilayer images to PNG in Adobe Photoshop. LinkOptimizer will now convert any multilayer file to PNG without interruption while preserving image transparency. The original image can contain layer masks, adjustments layers and layer styles. Previous versions of LinkOptimizer required user interruption when certain multilayer documents had to be converted to PNG.
LinkOptimizer works with Photoshop to automatically 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 dpi
* Convert all RGB images to CMYK
* Resave all JPEG images as TIFF
* Run a Photoshop Action on each image
* 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.
