[prMac.com] Toronto (ON) Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is proud to announce the release of LinkOptimizer 4.9.33, a maintenance 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 introduces full support for multi-state objects in InDesign CC 2014 documents. In previous versions only active links of multi-state objects were processed. The new update also fixes an issue in which the link safety bleed could be reset to zero during analyzing, improves the bleed value formatting and fixes certain user interface issues on Mac OS X Yosemite.
"LinkOptimizer makes me extremely happy", says Nynke Tiekstra, the owner of design studio ColtsfootMedia in Friesland, Netherlands. "It converted 10,000 images in a 1800 pages project saving us at least 40 hours work, and it proved to be 100% accurate."
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 resolution to 300 dpi
* Convert RGB images to CMYK
* 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 links instead of original files.
Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Light version: $179.95) as well as from authorized resellers and Adobe Exchange. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 4.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires Mac OS X 10.6-10.10 and Adobe InDesign and Photoshop CS3-CC 2014.
