[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is pleased to announce the release of LinkOptimizer 4.9.47, 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 and allows to reduce the size of InDesign links, repurpose them for web and mobile devices, save processing time and reduce production costs.
The new version streamlines conversion of InDesign links to JPEG by automatically flattening image layers prior to saving the file. This feature allows to avoid unnecessary process interruption in Photoshop, which presents the Save As dialog on attempt to save a layered image to JPEG. In previous versions, users had to explicitly select the option to flatten images in LinkOptimizer settings.
"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 offers the following main features:
* Resize images to match their InDesign dimensions at a target resolution
* Reduce link size by eliminating excess image data
* Convert colors and apply ICC profile
* Merge layers and delete hidden ones
* Convert image formats
* Optimize files for web and mobile devices
* Run a Photoshop Action on each image
