LinkOptimizer for Adobe InDesign Fixes Photoshop Layer Merge Issue

June 24, 2019 in Publishing (E)

[] Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.24, a maintenance update to company's image processing automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer solves the issue of excess image resolution of InDesign links and helps users save prepress costs and production time as well as easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices

The new version fixes an error in which the option to merge visible layers in Photoshop wasn't executed for images where all layers were contained by layer sets. Users often select the "Merge visible layers" setting to ensure that Photoshop layer styles are scaled correctly when resizing images to their InDesign dimensions. In addition to layer merge, LinkOptimizer can also automatically flatten images and delete unused layers.

"Today LinkOptimizer batched a huge book project and another magazine project in minutes vs. hours. Now I can take the afternoon off and drink beer," says Brian Donahue, owner of Bedesign studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota. "Thanks for freeing up my afternoon, rather than doing production work."

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, convert image formats, and perform essential image adjustments. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

* Optimize batches of InDesign files and books
* Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
* Convert RGB images to specific CMYK profile
* Change their resolution to 300 dpi
* Resave JPEGs as TIFF
* Run a Photoshop action on each image

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.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.7-10.14 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2019.
