Product Announcement – Zevrix Solutions of Toronto (ON) Canada has released PDF Checkpoint 1.7.17, a compatibility update to company’s PDF preflight and conversion automation tool. Remarkably fast, PDF Checkpoint automatically preflights, exports as images, splits and optimizes multiple Adobe PDF files. PDF Checkpoint is an ideal program for users who need a fast, affordable and easy to use solution to check PDF files for errors and convert them to the desired format and color space.
The new version makes PDF Checkpoint compatible with the recently released macOS 10.12 Sierra and is offered as a free update to the licensed users. The app is available on Mac App Store.
PDF Checkpoint is designed to automate and simplify PDF workflows of publishers, ad agencies, prepress houses, printers and graphic designers:
- Batch preflighting and conversion of PDF files
- Check PDF fonts, colors, images and metadata for specific attributes
- Convert PDF color mode using ICC profiles
- Route files by preflight results into success and error folders
- Split files into single page PDFs
- Export PDF as images with specific resolution, color and page scale
For example, users can preflight a folder of PDF files and convert them to TIFF images at 300 dpi while scaling each page by 50%. Or optimize documents for web and mobile devices while reducing file size dramatically by downsampling images to the screen resolution. Users can also create print-ready PDFs from such apps as Apple Pages and Swift Publisher by converting colors to the recommended CMYK profile.
PDF Checkpoint can be purchased on Mac App Store and Zevrix website for $39.95 (USD), as well as from authorized resellers. The update is free to licensed users. Trial is also available for download. PDF Checkpoint requires macOS 10.7-10.12.
