ABOUT EPS FILE FORMAT
The Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) file format is used to transfer PostScript language artwork between applications, and is supported by most illustration and page-layout programs. Typically, EPS files represent single illustrations or tables that are placed into your layout, but an EPS file can also represent a complete page.
Because they are based on the PostScript language, EPS files can contain both vector and bitmap graphics. Since PostScript cannot normally be displayed on-screen, In-Design creates a bitmap preview for an EPS file for on-screen display. If you print a page with an EPS file to a non-PostScript printer, only this screen-resolution preview will be printed. In-Design recognizes clipping paths in Photoshop-created EPS files.
When you import an EPS file, any spot colors it contains are added to the Swatches palette in
In-Design. EPS allows for prepress-quality resolution, precision, and color. This format includes all of the color and image data required to color-separate DCS images embedded in the EPS graphic. EPS isnâ€t ideal for online publishing in HTML, but it works well for online publishing in PDF.
