LinkOptimizer for InDesign Simplifies Image Color Profile Conversion

Toronto (ON) Canada – Zevrix Solutions today is proud to announce the release of LinkOptimizer 4.8.2, a feature update to its popular workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. 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.

The new version lets users automatically convert both RGB and CMYK images to target ICC color profile in one step, making it easy to assign the desired profile to all InDesign links regardless of their original color mode. This option further helps professionals keep the image colors as consistent and predictable as possible as they pass through the various stages of the workflow.

“LinkOptimizer makes me extremely happy”, says Nynke Tiekstra, the owner of design studio ColtsfootMedia in Friesland, Netherlands, “It converted 10,000 images in a 1800 pages project saving us at least 40 hours work, and it proved to be 100% accurate.”

To reduce the job size, LinkOptimizer automatically reduces the image resolution, scales and crops the images in Photoshop according to their dimensions in InDesign and the target resolution specified, and reimports them to InDesign at 100%. In addition, LinkOptimizer can convert image colors, apply sharpening, merge layers, convert formats and more. 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 RGB images to CMYK
* Resave JPEG links as TIFF
* Run a Photoshop Action on each image

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.

Pricing and Availability:
LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Light version: $179.95) as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 4.x users and $98.78 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer is available for Mac OS X 10.5-10.8, a Universal Binary, and works with Adobe InDesign CS3-CC.
