Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of LinkOptimizer 5.2, a compatibility update to its image workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign (http://www.zevrix.com/LinkOptimizer.php). LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks helping InDesign users reduce the link size, save processing time and production costs, and repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.
The new version introduces support for the upcoming macOS 10.13 High Sierra and is offered as a free update to the licensed users of version 5. The update also makes LinkOptimizer a fully 64-bit native application, thus improving its performance and reducing the likelihood of memory-related errors especially when processing large images in Photoshop.
“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 automatically with Adobe Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert image formats. The software offers the following main features:
-Resize links to match their InDesign dimensions at a target resolution
-Convert colors and apply ICC profile
-Batch process InDesign files
-Merge layers and delete hidden ones
-Convert image formats
-Optimize files for web and mobile devices
-Run a Photoshop Action on each image
As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space and hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.
