Zevrix Solutions announces the release of LinkOptimizer 4.8, a compatibility update to its popular workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 starts 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 makes LinkOptimizer compatible with recently released InDesign and Photoshop CC, featured as part of Creative Cloud. The update is free to LinkOptimizer users. The same version of LinkOptimizer can be used with any version of InDesign from CS3 to CC.
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.
