Reduce InDesign link size, convert colors and formats, and more.

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 LinkOptimizer

Version 5.4.19:
  • improved: LinkOptimizer now checks InDesign files for forward slashes "/" in the path and doesn't allow processing if any are found.
  • fixed: Fixed a rare issue in which the image clipping path settings in InDesign were reset to default after re-importing.

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 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!

It works! And it does it real fast. Linkoptimizer saves a lot of time and is custumisable to my needs. Can't all this be done manually? Yes it can but I rather spent my time on something more usefull like playing World of Warcraft. If your're using InDesing a lot you really should give it a try. Also see the Q&A section of de Zevrix website for some more details. 5 stars for developers support.

Awesome! I tried the demo with a 7.3Gb job in InDesign containing 126 links. LinkOptimizer optimized the files to 2Gb in about 20 minutes (including backup of original files and applying slight sharpen mask to optimized images). Pretty impressive! In fact, Link Optimizer was faster doing that than InDesign packaging the job for DVD burning. I'm now convinced that LinkOptimizer is an invaluable tool for our design studio.

This product is magic. It does exactly what it claims to do, and fast. Not only that, but the developer contacted me within hours when I reported a "bug" (which turned out to be a problem with InDesign finding graphic files but not updating file-path information for the links, despite a change to a folder name), and kept contacting me until the problem was resolved. Even if you used this only as a calculator for effective resolution it would be amazing. That it can then optimize images to that resolution automatically makes it a must-have, especially for those producing print-ready InDesign files. Highly recommended.
