[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of LinkOptimizer 4.9.37, a maintenance update to its workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks allowing users to significantly reduce the size of InDesign links, save processing time and reduce production costs.
The new version improves the reliability of ICC colors profile handling during image processing in Photoshop. LinkOptimizer gives users have the ability to automatically convert images to a specific color profile or unembed the profiles altogether. The update addresses an issue in which color profiles weren't unembedded from PSD files when this option was unchecked. The new version also ensures that user's choice of converting links to the current Adobe's Working CMYK profile is honored when processing images with embedded profiles.
"LinkOptimizer is the one product no creative studio can live without," says Wayne Guy from Edge Graphics studio in Lake Balboa, California. "It saves hours of time, tediously replacing linked images, resizing, batch processing... If you're a designer or production artist, you need this."
LinkOptimizer works automatically with 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 resolution to 300 dpi
* Convert RGB images CMYK
* Resave JPEG images as PSD
* Run a Photoshop Action on each image
As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.
