Encapsulated PostScript® (EPS) can represent both vector and bitmap data and is supported by virtually all graphic, illustration, and page-layout programs. Adobe applications that produce PostScript artwork include Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Dimensions, and Adobe Streamline. When you open an EPS file containing vector art, it is rasterized—the mathematically defined lines and curves of the vector artwork are converted into the pixels or bits of a bitmap image.
You can also bring PostScript artwork into Photoshop or ImageReady using the Place command, the Paste command, and the drag-and-drop feature. (See "Placing files" on page 80, "Using drag and drop to copy between applications" on page 170, and "Using the Clipboard to copy between applications" on page 171.)
