ArtOptimizer Can Scale Layer Styles in Photoshop
Zevrix Solutions releases version 3.1 of ArtOptimizer for Adobe Illustrator, an update to the image workflow automation solution. The only tool of its kind on the Mac platform, ArtOptimizer eliminates the excess image data of Illustrator links and performs essential image adjustments. The software helps users save disk space as well as cut production time and reduce operational costs through automation of complex image manipulation tasks.
Version 3.1 adds support to the Scale Style option in Photoshop that allows to scale the layer effects in the resized image. The feature lets ArtOptimizer users retain the original layer structure of optimized Illustrator links instead of having to merge image layers during processing. Photoshop layers had to be merged in previous versions of the plug-in to preserve the proportional appearance of drop shadows, bevels, overlays and other layer effects.
