LinkOptimizer Light 4
Zevrix Solutions has released v4 of its Adobe InDesign plug-in, LinkOptimizer Light. The software is used to convert between various image formats and eliminate excess image data, effectively reducing the time spent processing images for online posting. The latest version improves the link information table, allowing users to view selected links in the InDesign document. The update also enhances back-up and relinking features, with options to optimize links for external use, such as web design, without relinking back to InDesign.
Version 4 additionally allows users to save current settings as presets. The full version of the application includes various features not included in LinkOptimizer Light 4, such as the ability to change the image resolutions without altering file sizes.
LinkOptimizer Light 4 requires Mac OS X 10.4.2 or higher and Adobe InDesign CS. New users can purchase the application directly from the company for $160, while an upgrade from previous versions costs $65. The full version costs $220 for new users or $90 for an upgrade.
