Zevrix Solutions (http://www.zevrix.com) has updated ArtOptimizer,
its workflow automation solution for Adobe Illustrator, to version
2.3.1. The new version addresses a critical issue that could prevent
ArtOptimizer from processing files on certain systems.
ArtOptimizer eliminates the excess image data of document links and
performs image adjustments, reducing the size of an Illustrator job.
In order to eliminate excess image data, the app 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%.
In addition, ArtOptimizer can automatically convert image colors,
apply sharpening filters, merge and delete layers, and run Photoshop
Actions during processing. ArtOptimizer 2.3.1 can be purchased from
the Zevrix Solutions web site at a 20% New Year sale discount for
US103.96, as well as from authorized resellers. A demo is also
available for download.
ArtOptimizer is available for Mac OS X 10.4.2 and higher and Adobe
Illustrator CS-CS4. It’s Universal Binary so runs natively on both
PowerPC and Intel Macs.
