Toronto’s Zevrix Solutions has announced that LinkOptimizer for Mac, its popular workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign, is available at 50% off on the discount website BitsDuJour on February 11-12 only. Awarded 4 out of 5 starts by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks allowing to significantly reduce the size of InDesign links, save processing time and reduce production costs.
“LinkOptimizer makes cutting huge linked images down to size a cinch,” says Computer Arts. “For those wanting to quickly optimize their images and cut down on processing time, LinkOptimizer is a very smart choice.”
LinkOptimizer works automatically with Adobe Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert image formats. For example, with just a click of a button users can:
- Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
- Change their resolution to 300 dpi
- Convert all RGB images to CMYK
- Resave all JPEG images as TIFF
- Run a Photoshop Action on each image
At the end of processing, LinkOptimizer reimports images to InDesign at 100% in their precise position. In addition, the software can apply sharpening filters, merge layers and delete hidden ones, and process copies of InDesign documents and images instead of original files. As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space and countless hours of optimizing images manually; accelerate document output; reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from BitsDuJour at 50% off for $129.95 (USD) on February 11-12 only. A Trial version is also available for download. LinkOptimizer is available for Mac OS X 10.4.2-10.8 and works with InDesign CS3-CS6.
