LinkOptimizer overview

LinkOptimizer is a workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign which works with Photoshop to reduce InDesign link size, perform essential image adjustments, and convert image formats. LinkOptimizer helps users save hours - and days - of optimizing and converting links manually. The app allows you to dramatically reduce the size of InDesign job, accelerate output, cut down on processing time and reduce production costs.

Features:
  • Reduce link size and optimize resolution:
    • LinkOptimizer will automatically reduce the image resolution, scale and crop the images in Photoshop according to their dimensions in the InDesign document and the target resolution specified, and reimport them to InDesign at 100%. Resolution upsampling is also possible.
  • Perform essential image adjustments:
    • Convert colors
    • Apply sharpening filters
    • Merge layers and delete hidden ones
  • Convert image formats
    • Convert links to JPEG, PSD, TIFF, and other formats automatically
    • Embed/unembed color profiles
  • Advanced options
    • Batch process InDesign files
    • Run Photoshop actions
    • Process specific InDesign layers
    • Optimize images for external use such as web design without relinking to InDesign

What’s new in version 6.1.8

Updated on Mar 22 2022

  • Cloud-based images placed from CC Libraries are now ignored. In previous versions an error occurred on attempt to process cloud-based images..

This software saves our company a lot of time. The software we use at my company requires the links to be 300dpi @ 100%.

Software is great. The technology we use with this must have links that is 300DPI @ 100%. This saves our company a ton of time.

I've used LinkOptimizer on a couple of catalogues with amazing results. Highly recommended.

I layout a magazine and this in conjunction with Output Factory makes my life MUCH easier. I also got InPreflight with my bundle.. but must admit I did not use it yet. In any case.. if you do any kind of InDesign work that goes beyond leaflets, posters etc.. Zevrix got you covered!

Things get must easier, when you need more time and more space for more important parts of the process. If you're professional, powerful time- saving features are what you need. Is this Worth It?

Like many have said, probably a good product...but not worth that kind of price unless you're producing a steady stream of income already.

Pricey for what it does, and probably not useful for the common mac user...but it looks like a useful product for Designers who are perpetually frustrated by the organization system behind InDesign links. This is most beneficial, I assume, for delivering a product to a printer -- allowing you to use e-mail instead of mailing a CD.

It fills a narrow niche, but could benefit those who use AID. $$$

This looks like a great app, however I have to agree with others about the price. It is a bit steep for me.

Nice product for a useful task. But THIS and other tasks were the main reason for me, learning Applescript. InDesign is extremly good scriptable and writing a script, that does exactly the same, requires only a few hours (or a weekend), when you have understood the basics of scripting.

This seems an interesting tool, something which you find in quark but not in indesign. Certainly a must have for every one who is using indesign.

Nice tool, but still a little bit to expensive for, because I'm a non professional user of InDesign.

If you use InDesign for a living, this app is brilliant, it's what InDesign's Package command should have done. Brilliantly done!

I guess if I used Indesign for web stuff -- which I don't -- this might be interesting. Don't get me wrong -- I like Indesign -- but it's strong point is not web graphics!

Excellent timing!!! Just as I'm about to start 6 new InDesign large projects!!! :) (definitely not something that I'd usually approve spending the full whack on - but at this price, I'd be silly not too!) I'll finally be able to backup all linked files with my InDesign jobs and not end up without space left - currently all the linked files are used in multiple documents so they're storred and backed up seperately. I'm glad to see some big and beefy apps here with some beautiful savings instead of the little utilities or games that seem more common (even though they get me to part with my cash just as easily) :P ...I wouldn't mind Adobe After Effects as a MUPromo ...hint hint. ;)
