LinkOptimizer for Adobe InDesign
Zevrix Solutions announces that LinkOptimizer, the company’s workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign, is available at on website BitsDuJour . Awarded 4 out of 5 starts by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks, which allows users to reduce the size of InDesign links, save processing time and decrease production costs.
“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 with Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert image formats.
- Optimize dozens of InDesign files with one click
- Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
- Change their resolution to 300 dpi
- Convert RGB images to CMYK
- Re-save JPEGs as TIFF
- Assign variable image names based on page number, color, date and other values
- 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 merge and delete layers, assign color profiles, and process document copies instead of original files. As a result users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually, as well as accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.
LinkOptimizer can be purchased form BitsDuJour. Trial is also available for download. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.8-10.15 and Adobe InDesign/Photoshop CS5-2020.
