linkOptimizer for Adobe InDesign
the solution for reducing the size of imagesZevrix Solutions has rolled out version 2.0 of LinkOptimizer, the solution for reducing the size of images linked to Adobe InDesign document automatically.
LinkOptimizer allows users to 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 2.0 introduces several major new features such as the option to optimize image copies instead of the originals themselves, ability to convert image colors and apply sharpening, and the processing of images in non-rectangular containers. The improved links table is now fully sortable, allows users to select multiple links and displays the image format.
LinkOptimizer will save, depending on a project, hours and even days of production time for publishing houses, design firms, printers, and service bureaus of any size. That's the time it could take to process the links manually! LinkOptimizer will also help users increase document output speed, save the time of transferring jobs to outside sources, reduce job cost through faster processing by service providers, and speed up the overall job turnaround.
LinkOptimizer also provides detailed feedback on every stage of processing, allows to specify image safety bleed and shows the amount of space saved by the optimizing.
