Zevrix releases ArtOptimizer 2.5 for Adobe Illustrator

Wednesday, June 16, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Toronto, Canada - Zevrix Solutions today is pleased to announces the release and immediate availability of ArtOptimizer 2.5, a compatibility update to its workflow automation solution for Adobe Illustrator. ArtOptimizer eliminates the excess image data of document links and performs essential image adjustments, thereby significantly reducing the size of Illustrator job and reducing output time and production costs.

In order to eliminate excess image data, ArtOptimizer automatically scales the images in Photoshop to match their dimensions in Illustrator, changes resolution according to the target resolution specified, and reimports images to Illustrator at 100%. As a result, the size of Illustrator job can be reduced dramatically - some jobs can shrink in size by half and more.

In addition, ArtOptimizer can automatically convert image colors, apply sharpening filters, merge and delete layers, and run Photoshop Actions during processing. ArtOptimizer benefits the workflows of service providers, printers, ad agencies and publishing houses by automating complex tasks and letting users achieve more with minimal resources:
- Save gigabytes of disk space
- Accelerate document output to printer and PDF
- Save endless hours - and even days - of manually optimizing image size, resolution and formats
- Save valuable time transferring jobs to outside sources
- Cut costs through faster processing

The new version makes ArtOptimizer compatible with Illustrator CS5. Zevrix also produces LinkOptimizer, a similar tool to automate image link optimization for Adobe InDesign.

Pricing and Availability:
ArtOptimizer 2.5 can be purchased from the Zevrix Solutions web site for $129.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. ArtOptimizer is available for Mac OS X 10.4.2-10.6, a Universal Binary, and works with Adobe Illustrator CS-CS5.
