Toronto (ON), Canada (July 17, 2013) -- Zevrix Solutions announces the release of ArtOptimizer 2.7, a compatibility update to its workflow automation solution for Adobe Illustrator. ArtOptimizer lets users reduce Illustrator link size, accelerate output and reduce production costs by automatically eliminating excess image data and performing essential image adjustments. For example, with just a click of a button users can:

-scale images to match their dimensions in Illustrator,
-change their resolution to 300 dpi,
-convert all RGB images to CMYK,
-merge layers or delete hidden ones,
-run a Photoshop Action on each image.

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.

The new version makes ArtOptimizer compatible with the recently released Illustrator and Photoshop CC featured as part of Adobe Creative Cloud. The update is free for the licensed users of ArtOptimizer.

ArtOptimizer can dramatically benefit the workflows of service providers, printers, ad agencies and publishing houses:

-Save endless hours - and even days - of optimizing images manually.
-Save valuable time transferring jobs to outside sources.
-Cut costs through faster processing.

Zevrix also makes the LinkOptimizer software, a similar tool to optimize links in Adobe InDesign documents.

Women More Erotically Adventurous Than Men, New Online Survey Shows

Contrary to common stereotypes, a recent survey of men and women conducted by online dating website SugarDaddyForMe.com shows women are overtaking men in how sexually adventurous they describe themselves to be.

New York City, NY, USA (July 17, 2013) -- Contact: Tom Andrews, 415-507-9962

A new adult dating survey conducted by SugarDaddyForMe.com is revealing women to be the more sexually adventurous gender in today's day and age. Breaking free of the common stereotypes of men as the more open gender when it comes to intimacy, surprisingly the women respondents to the survey in many ways expressed more adventurous erotic preferences than the men. More women (16%) than men (13%) described themselves as "kinky", more women (15%) than men (11%) described their sexual nature as "wild", more women (9%) than men (1%) described themselves as "bisexual", and more women (11%) than men (9%) said they are "into sexual role playing".

Another finding shows more women had their first intimate experience at an earlier age than men. A surprising 85% of the women respondents had their first experience by 18 years of age or younger, compared to just 73% of the men. But the biggest difference was that a full 36% of the women had their first experience between the ages of 15 and 16 while only 26% of the men started that early.

Both sugar babies and sugar daddies are more sexually active than the average man and woman. According to the dating website results, sugar babies and sugar daddies engage in intercourse:

- 3-6 times per week - 58% (women); 58% (men)
- More than 7 times per week - 24% (women); 19% (men)

When it comes to 'doing the deed', 76% of the men responding expect intercourse to be part of any relationship, while only 18% of women have the same expectation. But surprisingly, the men prefer a longer period of foreplay than the women! For example, six times more women than men say that "the shorter the foreplay the better." Reinforcing this surprising result, more men (38%) than women (21%) say that they prefer foreplay to last between at least 30 minutes to more than an hour. The majority of both genders consider that the optimal amount of foreplay is between 15-30 minutes.

While men's preference was for longer foreplay than women, it was just the opposite when it came to the amount of time they each prefer intercourse to last. A majority of men (52%) prefer intercourse to last just 30 minutes or less, whereas a large majority of women (65%) would like intercourse to last 30 to 45 minutes, an additional 18% of women prefer at least 45 minutes to an hour of intercourse, and a full 16% of women want intercourse to last more than an hour.

Men were also found to be more sexually active than women in the last year, and have had more overall partners in the span of their lives. Whereas the majority of women (52%) have had 10 partners or less in their lifetime, only 18% of men had as few as 10 or less sexual partners in their lifetime. Within the last year, more women (79%) than men (53%) had 3 partners or less, while more men (48%) than women (21%) had 4 or more partners in the last year.

And with other stimulants thrown in the intercourse mix, the online dating website found men surpassed women in their preference for using toys and/or male enhancements, having intimate relationships with multiple people at once and oral stimulation.
