[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of LinkOptimizer 4.4.7, a maintenance 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.
"The magic lies in the elimination of excessive image data." - writes Erik Vlietinck in IT Enquirer - "I found LinkOptimizer to be a great addition to InDesign."
"LinkOptimizer has saved me at least its value in time, over the last working day." - says Miriam MacPhail of Society of Graphic Designers of Canada - "Love the product!"
The new update addresses a Photoshop CS5 issue which prevented certain images from opening and introduces some interface improvements.
LinkOptimizer is a powerful automation solution whether your target is print or handheld 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 Photoshop Action on each image
At the end of processing, LinkOptimizer will reimport images to InDesign at 100% in their precise position. As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.
