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.

 

Features:

  • 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

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.

LinkOptimizer Update Adds New Duplicate Image Name Options

Zevrix Solutions releases LinkOptimizer 5.4.15, an update to image processing 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 decrease production costs.

 

 

Version 5.4.15 adds advanced options for the naming of duplicate InDesign links during processing. Users can now assign unique names to duplicates by using a random number or by appending a serial number to the variable file name. With this update, it also improves memory management and addresses a bug in InDesign that caused an error when updating links during analyzing on macOS Catalina.

 

“LinkOptimizer has changed my life and saved me days and days of work as a retoucher for an international quarterly magazine,” says Steve Krason of Chicago based SK Design Group. “It’s a lifesaver”.

 

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Adobe Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert various image formats.

For example:

  • Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
  • Change their resolution to 300 ppi
  • Convert all RGB images to CMYK
  • Resave all JPEG images as TIFF
  • Run a Photoshop Action on each image

  • Accelerate document output

  • Reduce job turnaround drastically and cut costs through faster processing

The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.8-10.15 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-2020.

Updated LinkOptimizer Can Sharpen All Layers In Photoshop

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.”
