Zevrix Solutions releases LinkOptimizer 5.4.10, an update to workflow automation tool for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and allows users to reduce the size of InDesign links, save processing time, and reduce production costs.
This version can sharpen all image layers in Photoshop automatically without having to merge layers first in order to sharpen the entire image. It will only sharpen the relevant pixel layers while ignoring adjustment and fill layers. In addition, the update fixes an error that could happen when analyzing InDesign documents with Illustrator and PDF links, improves memory management, and removed the redundant option to run the app in full screen mode.
“This is the best extension I ever purchased for any design app,” says Wayne Guy of Edge Graphics in Van Nuys, California. “It saves hours of time, tediously replacing linked images, resizing and batch processing. If you’re a designer or production artist that works with large inDesign files with lots of images, like catalogs or magazines, you need this.”
LinkOptimizer works with Photoshop to reduce InDesign link size, convert image formats, and perform essential image adjustments.
- Optimize batches of InDesign files and books
- Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
- Convert RGB images to CMYK
- Change their resolution to 300 dpi
- Resave PSD files as TIFF
- Run a Photoshop action on each image
At the end of processing, it 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. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions.
