LinkOptimizer for InDesign Improves ICC Color Profile Handling

By on Sep 30, 2013 at 3:32 am

Toronto (ON) Canada – Zevrix Solutions today is proud to announce the release of LinkOptimizer 4.8.4, a maintenance update to its popular workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. 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 addresses an issue in which some ICC color profiles weren’t available to the users due to non-standard data structure. The update also lists color profiles installed by the recent versions of Adobe Creative Cloud products into a newly added location in the system library. The option to use profiles for color conversion helps users keep the image colors as consistent and predictable as possible as they pass through the various stages of their workflow.

“I have used LinkOptimizer since 2008,” says Shari Barnhart of Rainbowtech Designs in St. Petersburg, Florida. “It made a large book project I was working on so much easier to prepare for the printing service.”

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 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 4.8.4 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 $129.97 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer is available for Mac OS X 10.5 and later, a Universal Binary, and works with Adobe InDesign CS3-CC.
