Saving files in Photoshop EPS format (Photoshop)
Virtually all page layout, word processing, and graphic applications accept imported or placed EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) files. To print EPS files, you must use a PostScript printer.
To save a file in Photoshop EPS format:
Creates a low-resolution image to view in the destination application. Choose TIFF to share an EPS file between Windows and Mac OS systems. An 8-bit preview delivers better display quality but larger file size than a 1-bit preview.
Note: To use the JPEG preview option in Mac OS, you must have QuickTime installed.
Determines the way image data is delivered to a PostScript output device:
Choose ASCII if you're printing from a Windows system, or if you experience printing errors or other difficulties.
Include Halftone Screen and Include Transfer Function
Control print specifications for high-end commercial print jobs. Consult your printer before selecting these options.
Displays white areas as transparent. This option is available only for images in Bitmap mode.
PostScript Color Management
Converts file data to the printer's color space. Do not select this option if you plan to place the image into another color-managed document. Doing so may disrupt the color management.
Note: Only PostScript Level 3 printers support PostScript Color Management for CMYK images. To print a CMYK image using PostScript Color Management on a Level 2 printer, convert the image to Lab mode before saving in EPS format.
Include Vector Data
Preserves any vector graphics (such as shapes and type) in the file. However, vector data in EPS and DCS files is only available to other applications; vector data is rasterized if you reopen the file in Photoshop.
Anti-aliases the printed appearance of a low-resolution image.
