The new version preserves transparency when converting image formats to TIFF, which is especially helpful for users who need to convert layered Photoshop (PSD) files and resave TIFF images with different compression settings. The update also ensures that the correct image resolution is set for monochrome images on German operating system and addresses some other minor issues.
"LinkOptimizer makes cutting huge linked images down to size a cinch," says Computer Arts. "For those wanting to quickly optimize their images and cut down on processing time, LinkOptimizer is a very smart choice."
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,
-apply color profile,
-resave JPEG images as TIFF,
-run a Photoshop Action on each image,
-reimport images to InDesign at 100% in their precise position.
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.
