First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Tambov the Tugboat” by Mark F. King

Tambov the Tugboat, by Mark F. King, is a delightful trip through the protected harbors of individuality.

Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada — Mark F. King’s Tambov the Tugboat lets this little tugboat make its way in a broad changing world and still remain relevant and important. A much needed reminder for finding one’s own strength and using them to their fullest.

Tambov the tugboat was the most useful tugboat in the harbor. She was small, and speedy. Tambov could dart in and out of the docks and around big ships. She was special.

A story of facing adversity and remaining true to your own standards, Tambov is a little steam engine that finds her place in a world of big diesels and gas powered tugs. Just because you are not the biggest or the most powerful doesn’t mean you don’t have a place in this world!

This story helps reinforce hard work and persistence, as well as belief in oneself.

“I love this book and so does my daughter. I really enjoy reading this to her and creating the sound effects, we both enjoy the detailed illustrations. I wish that more books published today like Tambov the Tugboat. This reminded me a bit of the Little Golden Books.” ~Amazon Verified Buyer

Genre – Tugboat, Steam Engine, Adversity, Challenges

Tambov the Tugboat ISBN 9781506906782, published by First Edition Design Publishing (http://www.firsteditiondesignpublishing.com), is available on-line wherever ebooks are sold.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces Package Central 1.11.6, a maintenance update to the company’s file packaging automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major publisher in the United States, the software automates InDesign packaging by processing files from watched hot folders. Package Central solves the problem of centralized packaging and archiving of InDesign projects in a workgroup environment, and can serve unlimited users on a network.

The new version eliminates workflow interruptions caused by Apple Event sandboxing – a new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave. Under the new policy, apps can no longer control other apps without initial user authorization. Which, in turn, directly affects productivity tools that require access to InDesign and other system resources in order to perform complex workflow automation tasks. The new update of Package Central streamlines the authorization process by clearing all permissions during launch time, which eliminates workflow interruptions during file processing. The app will also automatically reset Apple Event permissions if the authorization was previously revoked by accident.

Under the Package Central workflow, prepress operators and designers simply submit files to watched hot folders that reside on a network. The software automatically collects InDesign files along with their fonts and links, thus freeing user’s time for important tasks such as design and layout. Package Central offers the following key features:

Automatically collect InDesign files from watched hot folders
-Create hot folders for various packaging settings
Create PDF and IDML files on the fly
-Assign variable package folder names
-Automatic email notifications on process stages and errors
Update modified links automatically
-Detailed processing logs
-Maintain a single set of settings for entire workgroup

Pricing and Availability:

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Messy Larry” by David J. Perri

Messy Larry, by David J. Perri, helps you connect with your creative child through an inspirational tale of a delightfully ‘messy’ hero.

Wheeling, WV, USA — David J. Perri’s Messy Larry is about being who you are, and about becoming who you were meant to be.

Messy Larry is an educational, feel-good story for the creative, art-inclined child. – Kirstan Nicole

Art is about self-expression and the desire to create. What is the role of art in your life? What if you had no way to express yourself? How would you be different?

Larry is a little different from the other kids in his grade school class. For starters, he’s big, and he’s clumsy, and he looks kind of like a bear! Larry loves art and wants to make art, but his messiness keeps getting in the way, with hilarious results.

At his wit’s end, he seeks out a favorite relative. Great Uncle Ken helps Larry find a way to express the beauty he knew was inside him. But, self-realization is often a messy and uncomfortable process. The undercurrent themes of compassion, acceptance, and understanding will resonate with many children.

A special “things to think about” section in the back provides the opportunity for discussion of these themes, as well as for the child to experience the book in a more interactive way.

Author/Illustrator David J. Perri is a native Pittsburgher who has lived in beautiful West Virginia for the past fifteen years. He is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame and the University of Dayton School of Law. He has two kids, works as a federal prosecutor, and likes to paint in his spare time.

Genre – Art, Artistic, Creative, Creativity, Self-Expression, Acceptance, Different, “Fitting In”, Friendship, Kids, Bear, Funny Bear

Messy Larry ISBN 9781506907048, published by First Edition Design Publishing (http://www.firsteditiondesignpublishing.com), is available on-line wherever ebooks are sold. The 42 page print book version, ISBN 9781506907031 and hardback ISBN 9781506907024, is published by First Edition Design Publishing and distributed worldwide to online booksellers.

LinkOptimizer for InDesign Eliminates Security Hassles on macOS Mojave

Zevrix Solutions announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.19, a maintenance update to company’s workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer lets users automatically eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, convert image formats and colors, embed profiles and more. The new version eliminates the hassles associated with Apple Event sandboxing – a security measure introduced in macOS Mojave that prevents interaction between different applications without prior user authorization.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.19, a maintenance update to its image processing automation plug-in for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks and allows users to reduce the size of InDesign links, save production costs, and easily repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.

The new version eliminates the hassles associated with Apple Event sandboxing, a new security measure introduced in macOS Mojave. Under the new policy, different apps can no longer interact with each other without prior user authorization. This change directly affects such tools as LinkOptimizer, which require access to InDesign and other system resources to perform complex workflow automation tasks. The new update streamlines the authorization process by clearing all permissions during launch time, which eliminates workflow interruptions during file processing. LinkOptimizer will also reset Apple Event permissions automatically if the authorization was previously revoked by accident.

“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, convert image formats, and perform essential image adjustments. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

Optimize multiple InDesign files
-Scale and crop images to match their dimensions in InDesign
Convert RGB images to specific CMYK profile
-Change their resolution to 300 dpi
-Run a Photoshop action on each image
-Resave PNG files as PSD

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 10.7-10.14 and Adobe InDesign / Photoshop CS5-CC 2019.
