Zevrix Solutions announces release of ArtOptimizer 3.0.8 for Adobe Illustrator, an update to image workflow automation solution. ArtOptimizer eliminates the excess image data of Illustrator picture 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.
ArtOptimizer adds support for the Preserve Details 2.0 resampling method, a new upscaling algorithm introduced in Photoshop CC 2018. The new option is the most advanced upscaling technology in Photoshop, which utilizes artificial intelligence to interpolate much more effectively. With this algorithm, image size can increase dramatically with surprisingly little loss of quality. Users now can select the Preserve Details 2.0 method directly in the app in order to apply it automatically to Illustrator links that require upscaling.
It is a powerful automation solution for users in the print, prepress, and web design industries. For example, with just a click of a button users can:
- Batch-process Illustrator files
- Scale images in Photoshop to match their dimensions in Illustrator
- Change image resolution to 300 dpi
- Convert RGB images to CMYK profile
- Resave JPEG files as TIFF
- Merge layers and delete unused ones
ArtOptimizer reimports images to Illustrator at 100% in their precise position. As a result users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually. In addition, ArtOptimizer helps users accelerate document printing and exporting to PDF, speed up file transfer to service providers, reduce job turnaround, and cut costs through faster processing.
ArtOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix web site for $120 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers and Adobe Exchange. Licensed users of earlier versions can upgrade to ArtOptimizer 3 for $60. Trial is also available for download.
