Graphic Inspector Update Addresses macOS Catalina Memory Bug

Zevrix Solutions releases Graphic Inspector 2.4.6, a security update to  quality control solution for images and vector graphic files. The software can check entire folders of documents for potential problems according to specific workflow requirements. This is the only tool on the market that lets the graphics industry professionals inspect both raster images and Adobe Illustrator documents.

 

 

Graphic Inspector new version addresses an issue that made it hang when retrieving icon previews for large batches of files on macOS Catalina. The problem was eventually traced to a memory bug introduced on macOS 10.15. The new update restores uninterrupted file processing of large image folders by Graphic Inspector. In the meantime, the display of icon previews on Catalina is temporarily suspended even if this option is checked in the app’s preferences. Until a workaround is found, Graphic Inspector will always display generic icons for all files.

 

“Graphic Inspector displays every bit of useful information about vector or raster graphic files and flags the ones that match rules you define,” writes Jay Nelson in Layers magazine. “With its combination of price, utility, and thoughtful design, Graphic Inspector is a rare gem.”

 

This app is designed to help users of any trade, whether it’s print, prepress, web design, or digital photography. For example, users can quickly locate files whose color mode is CMYK, format – TIFF, resolution is below 300 dpi, ICC profile isn’t “US Web Coated” and so on.

 

Key features:

  • Check multiple images and vector files for potential problems
  • Customizable checkup presets
  • Common checks such as resolution, color mode, ICC profile
  • Professional prepress checks: spot colors, fonts in vector files, image compression and more
  • Search image EXIF, IPTC and GPS metadata

 

Graphic Inspector can be purchased from the Zevrix web site for $19.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for users of version 2 ($10 to upgrade from version 1). Graphic Inspector requires macOS 10.8-10.15.

LinkOptimizer Now Supports Creative Cloud 2020

Zevrix Solutions releases LinkOptimizer 5.3.17, an update to the company’s workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and allows to significantly reduce the size of InDesign links, save processing time and reduce production costs.

 

 

The new adds support to the recently released InDesign and Photoshop 2020. The same version of LinkOptimizer can be used with any version of InDesign from CS5 and later. The update also fixes an issue related to variable image name tokens that allow users to insert the link serial number in InDesign document or page into the optimized image name.

 

“LinkOptimizer makes me extremely happy”, says Nynke Tiekstra, the owner of design studio ColtsfootMedia in Friesland, Netherlands, “It converted 10000 images in a 1800 pages project saving us at least 40 hours work, and it proved to be 100% accurate.”

 

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Photoshop to perform essential image adjustments, convert image formats, and eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, . For example, with just a click of a button users can:

  • Process dozens of InDesign files
  • Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
  • Change their resolution to 300 dpi
  • Convert RGB images to a CMYK profile
  • Resave PNG files 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. As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

 

LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Light version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download.
