[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is pleased to announce PDF Checkpoint 1.2.1, a maintenance update to its solution to automate PDF preflighting and conversion. Remarkably fast, PDF Checkpoint automatically preflights, exports as images, splits and optimizes multiple PDF files. PDF Checkpoint is ideal for users who need a fast, affordable and easy to use workflow solution in situations where expensive hi-end tools would be an overkill.
The new version improves the management of preflight profiles and addresses several issues related to profile importing, exporting, editing and reordering. It also improves reliability of preflight results related to PDF/X compatibility and document version. PDF Checkpoint is designed to help graphic designers, ad agencies, prepress houses and printers, and offers the following key solutions and benefits:
* Batch-process PDF files with a simple drag-and-drop
* Quickly preflight PDF for common problems using preflight profiles
* View all PDF fonts, colors, images and metadata at a glance
* Route files into success/error folders according to preflight results
* Split files into single page PDFs
* Export PDF as TIFF, JPEG and other image formats and specify output resolution, color and page scale
For example, users can preflight a folder of PDF files and convert successful ones to CMYK TIFF images at resolution 300 dpi while scaling each page by 50%. Or optimize documents for the web and reduce PDF file size dramatically by downsampling images to 72 dpi.
