Zevrix Solutions releases LinkOptimizer 5.4.4, an update to the 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.
This version adds support to the Preserve Details 2.0 resampling method, a brand 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. LinkOptimizer users can now select the Preserve Details 2.0 directly in the app.
“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 with Photoshop to perform essential image adjustments, convert image formats, and eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, . For example, users can:
- Process batches of InDesign files
- Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
- Change their resolution to 300 dpi
- Resave PNG files as PSD
- Convert RGB images to a CMYK profile
- Merge layers or delete hidden ones
At the end, 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 Trial is also available for download.
