[prMac.com] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of LinkOptimizer 4.1, an update to its popular workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer - recently dubbed "the greatest plug-in of all time" by Glen Drake of the Pindar publishing group - 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.
In order to eliminate excess image data, LinkOptimizer automatically scales and crops the images in Photoshop to match their dimensions in InDesign, changes resolution according to the target resolution specified, and reimports images to InDesign at 100%. As a result, the size of InDesign job can be reduced dramatically - some jobs can shrink by 80% and more.
LinkOptimizer 4 improves the workflow of service providers, printers, ad agencies and publishing houses by automating complex tasks and letting users achieve more with minimal resources:
* Save gigabytes of disk space.
* Accelerate document output to printer and PDF.
* Save endless hours - and even days - of manually optimizing image size, resolution and formats.
* Save valuable time transferring jobs to outside sources.
* Cut costs through faster processing.
The new version introduces compatibility with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, and addresses several performance and stability issues related to InDesign clipping paths, link status and international system support.
Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer 4.1 can be purchased from the Zevrix Solutions web site, www.zevrix.com, for $239.95 USD (upgrade - $95.98), as well as from authorized resellers. Demo is also available for download. LinkOptimizer is available for Mac OS X 10.4.2-10.6, a Universal Binary, and works with Adobe InDesign CS-CS4.
