[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 4.9.26, a feature update to its popular workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks allowing to significantly reduce the size of InDesign links, save processing time and reduce production costs.
The new version lets users insert time stamp into the variable names of optimized images. This is especially useful for the users who need to assign a unique file name to each optimized image. LinkOptimizer gives an option to insert separate tokens for the hour, minute and second of the processing time. In addition, the update allows to insert the source InDesign file name into the final image variable name.
LinkOptimizer 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 dpi
* Convert RGB images to CMYK
* Apply color profile
* Resave JPEG images as TIFF
* Run a Photoshop Action on each image
At the end of processing, LinkOptimizer reimports images to InDesign at 100% in their precise position. In addition, the software can apply sharpening filters, merge layers and delete hidden ones, and process copies of InDesign documents and images instead of original files. As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

LinkOptimizer 4.9.26 can be purchased from the Zevrix website for USD $259.95 (Light version: $179.95) as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download.
