LinkOptimizer 1.5 for InDesign Released
Zevrix Solutions today announced the release of version 1.5 of LinkOptimizer, the solution for reducing the size of images linked to Adobe InDesign document automatically. LinkOptimizer helps users save valuable storage space, time and reduce production costs by eliminating excessive image data. The program automatically reduces the size of linked images with an effective resolution higher than the user-defined target resolution, as well as images that were cropped in InDesign. LinkOptimizer opens the images in Photoshop, automatically reduces their resolution, and scales and crops them, replicating their dimensions in the InDesign document. LinkOptimizer then reimports the images into the document at 100% in precise position. Version 1.5 introduces several major new features such as safety bleed around images, ability to select which links to process, and the processing of non-proportionally scaled images. The link list is now resizable and users can also compare the size of each image before and after processing. LinkOptimizer 1.5 is a Universal Binary and runs natively on Intel-based Macs. Publishing houses, design firms, printers, and service bureaus of any size will save, depending on a project, hours and even days of production time it could take to process the links manually. LinkOptimizer will also help users increase the document output speed, save the time of transferring jobs to outside sources, reduce the job cost through faster processing by service providers, and speed up the overall job turnaround. LinkOptimizer also allows users to back up original images before processing, provides detailed feedback on every stage, and shows the amount of space saved by the optimizing. Pricing and Availability LinkOptimizer 1.5 is priced at US$65 and can be purchased from the Zevrix Solutions web site, http://www.zevrix.com. Demo is also available for download. LinkOptimizer 1.5 is available for Mac OS X 10.4.2 and higher, and works with Adobe InDesign CS/CS2 and Adobe Photoshop CS/CS2.
