Toronto (ON), Canada - Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 5.3.8, a feature update to company's image processing automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and helps users reduce the size of InDesign links, save prepress costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.
The new version introduces the Random Number variable token for the optimized image name with the option to specify the number of digits for each random number. The new token is indispensable for the users who need to apply a unique identifier to each image link without breaking their links to InDesign. In addition, the update fixes an issue in which some sharpening and layer merge settings were not honored under some rare conditions when processing multiple files.
"Today LinkOptimizer batched a huge book project and another magazine project in minutes vs. hours. Now I can take the afternoon off and drink beer," says Brian Donahue, owner of Bedesign studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota. "Thanks for freeing up my afternoon, rather than doing production work."
LinkOptimizer works automatically with 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:
* Optimize dozens of InDesign files
* Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
* Change their resolution to 300 dpi
* Convert RGB images to CMYK
* Resave JPEGs 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.

LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for $259.95 USD (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download.
