LinkOptimizer 4 update
Zevrix has launched a new version of its InDesign optimization software, LinkOptimizer 4. The application helps resize InDesign jobs, while increasing processing speed by eliminating excess data. With the update LinkOptimizer is now a Cocoa-based plug-in, armed with a redesigned user interface and over 20 added features such as setting presets, resampling methods and detailed processing logs.
Other changes include support for flipped images, and a hold on error messages until processing is complete. Images can now be converted into specific formats, and left alone when optimizing the resolution of several documents simultaneously. When backing up and relinking, variable names can be composed using tokens, and optimized files can be automatically saved in a subfolder.
LinkOptimizer 4 requires Mac OS X 10.4.2, and can be bought from Zevrix for an introductory price of $220. Users of a previous version can upgrade for $90, while new users have the option of a demo.
