Add Random Numbers to Image Names With LinkOptimizer for InDesign Now

LinkOptimizer 5.3.8 from¬†Zevrix Solutions is a feature update to company’s image processing automation solution for Adobe InDesign. inkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and helps users reduce the size of InDesign links, save prepress costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.



The new version introduces the Random Number variable token for the optimized image name with the option to specify the number of digits for each random number. The new token is indispensable for the users who need to apply a unique identifier to each image link without breaking their links to InDesign. In addition, the update fixes an issue in which some sharpening and layer merge settings were not honored under some rare conditions when processing multiple files.


LinkOptimizer works automatically with 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:

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

LinkOptimizer can be purchased from the Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. A free 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 10.8-10.15 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2019.
