Real Estate Agent Ashley Wayland Offers Tips and Tricks to Prepare your Home for Fall

Autumn is just around the corner, so Real Estate Agent Ashley Wayland of Wayland Properties is offering tips and tricks to get your home ready for the season.

Monterey, CA, September 27, 2018 — Autumn is just around the corner, so Real Estate Agent Ashley Wayland of Wayland Properties is offering tips and tricks to get your home ready for the season.

Suggested Home Fall Maintenance:

It’s time to clean out those gutters to get ready for the weather (hopefully). Why is this important? Clogged gutters create “sludge,” which is extremely difficult to remove. Water will then overflow from the gutters onto your home, causing wood rot. Wood rot attracts termites, compounding your problems.

•It’s time to clean out your chimney! There are some great companies across the Monterey Peninsula that can take care of this for you, starting at, $149.

•Test your carbon monoxide detectors. With cold weather approaching and heaters being used more often, protect your family from the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. It will only take a few minutes of your time to test your carbon monoxide detectors.

•If you live an area that is prone to freezing temperatures, right now is the time to wrap/insulate any of your exterior pipes so they don’t freeze and break. Even in the Salinas Valley, there is an occasional freeze.

•Do you have any “sick” trees or large branches that are close to or hanging over your home? With winter storms around the corner, it’s important to be sure that nothing unhealthy is within reach of your improvements. Call Lopez & Sons for an estimate today at 831-915-7619.

But wait, there’s more! Just kidding! Here are a few additional tips, but this time for your vehicle:

•If you’re heading up to snow country, make sure you have plenty of anti-freezing windshield wiper fluid in your vehicle. Have you ever been stuck on Highway 80 on the Summit behind large trucks before? You will thank me later!

•Also, it never hurts to pre-purchase chains and carry cash to have them installed if necessary. You never know when you will be caught in the snow!

I know that sometimes it can feel like your home is a never-ending money pit, but it is one of the largest investments you will ever make. Take heart, you are incredibly blessed to own a home! More than 64% of American’s own their own home. It’s one of the largest investments you will ever make, so it’s incredibly important to protect your investment and take great care of it!

LinkOptimizer for Adobe InDesign Now Supports macOS Mojave

Zevrix Solutions announces LinkOptimizer 5.2.10, a compatibility update to company’s workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Awarded 4 out of 5 stars by Computer Arts magazine, LinkOptimizer can automatically resize InDesign links to their final dimensions at a target resolution specified. The app can also assign colors profiles, perform image adjustments and convert file formats. The new version makes LinkOptimizer compatible with the recently released macOS 10.14 Mojave.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of LinkOptimizer 5.2, a compatibility update to company’s image workflow automation solution for Adobe InDesign. LinkOptimizer automates complex image manipulation tasks helping InDesign users reduce the link size, save processing time and production costs, and repurpose InDesign documents for web and mobile devices.

The new version introduces support for the upcoming macOS 10.14 Mojave and is offered as a free update to the licensed users of version 5. Users of earlier versions can update to LinkOptimizer 5 at a discount.

“Today LinkOptimizer batched a huge book project and another magazine project in minutes vs. hours. Now I can take the afternoon off and drink beer,” says Brian Donahue, owner of Bedesign studio in Minneapolis, Minnesota. “Thanks for freeing up my afternoon, rather than doing production work.”

LinkOptimizer works automatically with Adobe Photoshop to eliminate the excess image data of InDesign links, perform essential image adjustments and convert image formats. The software offers the following main features:

-Resize links to match their InDesign dimensions at a target resolution
Convert colors and apply ICC profile
-Batch process InDesign files
-Merge layers and delete hidden ones
Convert image formats
-Optimize files for web and mobile devices
-Run a Photoshop Action on each image

As a result, users can save gigabytes of disk space and hours of optimizing images manually, accelerate document output, reduce job turnaround and cut costs through faster processing.

LinkOptimizer can be purchased from Zevrix website for US$259.95 (Lite version: $179.95) as well as from 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 2018.
