Zevrix Solutions announces that LinkOptimizer for Adobe InDesign CS6 is now available on Adobe Exchange, a new Creative Suite extension marketplace. It is available as a panel within a variety of CS6 applications. The Adobe Exchange panel provides a new way to search, discover, and install plug-ins, extensions, and other content for Creative Suite products. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks allowing to significantly reduce the size of InDesign links, save processing time and reduce production costs.
"We are delighted to have products like LinkOptimizer from Zevrix Solutions available on Adobe Exchange", says Jonathan Ferman, Adobe Exchange Product Manager. "This provides users with an easy way to install products and see updates as and when they become available."
InDesign CS6 users can download the Adobe Exchange panel from adobeexchange.com. After the installation, the panel will be available in InDesign's Window > Extensions menu.
LinkOptimizer is a powerful automation solution, whether users target print, web or mobile devices. The software 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 ppi,
-convert all RGB images to CMYK,
-resave all 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.
