LinkOptimizer for Adobe InDesign Addresses Apple Security Bug

Zevrix Solutions announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.2, a maintenance update to company’s workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer lets users automatically scale and crop images to their InDesign dimensions at specified target resolution, convert image formats, adjust colors and more. The new version addressed a macOS security bug that invoked app translocation for no reason, which prevented LinkOptimizer from recognizing the version of InDesign the plug-in was installed with.

Toronto, ON, Canada – November 9, 2017 – Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.2, a maintenance update to its image processing automation plug-in for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and helps users reduce the size of InDesign links, save prepress costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.

The new version addresses a bug in Apple security frameworks on macOS 10.12 and later, which affects a small number of users. The bug results in invocation of app translocation – a security feature that causes a launched app to run from a randomized path – even when installing software from developer-signed disk images. This issue caused LinkOptimizer to always open the latest version of InDesign regardless of the version the plug-in was installed with. The new update eliminates this problem even when app translocation is invoked.

“LinkOptimizer has changed my life and saved me days and days of work as a retoucher for an international quarterly magazine,” says Steve Krason of Chicago based SK Design Group. “It’s a lifesaver”.

LinkOptimizer works automatically with 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:

Optimize dozens of InDesign files
– Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
– Change their resolution to 300 dpi
Convert RGB images to CMYK
– Resave JPEGs as TIFF
– Run a Photoshop action on each image.

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.

Pricing and Availability:

LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for US$259.95 (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from Adobe Exchange and authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for LinkOptimizer 5.x users and $130 to upgrade from previous versions. LinkOptimizer requires macOS 10.7-10.13 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2018.
