[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions announces the release of LinkOptimizer 4.0, a major new version of its workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer eliminates the excess image data of document links, performs essential image adjustments and converts various image formats, thereby significantly reducing the size of InDesign job and reducing output time and production costs.
LinkOptimizer automatically reduces the image resolution, scales and crops the images in Photoshop according to their dimensions in the InDesign document and the target resolution specified, and reimports them to InDesign at 100%. The software can also convert image colors, apply sharpening filters, merge layers, as well as run Photoshop Actions and convert image formats.
LinkOptimizer 4 can dramatically improve the workflow of service providers, printers, ad agencies and publishing houses by letting users achieve more with minimal resources:
* Save gigabytes of disk space
* Accelerate document output: output time can be shortened from hours to minutes for image-rich projects
* Save endless hours - and even days - of manually optimizing image size and resolution
* Save valuable time transferring jobs to outside sources
* Cut costs through faster processing
The completely revamped LinkOptimizer 4 arrives with more than 20 new powerful features and improvements, including settings presets, resampling methods, detailed processing logs and a redesigned user interface. With its core rewritten in Cocoa, LinkOptimizer 4 is the first ever Cocoa-based plug-in for InDesign.
Like all other Zevrix solutions for InDesign, LinkOptimizer 4 is a plug-in application - a more advanced type of plug-in that combines full integration with InDesign with the versatility of a standalone application.
