1 Save the artwork, and choose Photoshop EPS from the Format menu. (See "Saving files" on page 446.)
2 In the EPS Options dialog box, select the options you want, and click OK:
Preview 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.
Encoding 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.
• Binary produces a smaller file and leaves the original data intact. Choose Binary encoding if you're printing from a Mac OS system. However, some page-layout applications and some commercial print spooling and network printing software may not support binary Photoshop EPS files.
• JPEG compresses the file by discarding some image data. Files with JPEG encoding can be printed only on Level 2 (or later) PostScript printers and may not separate into individual plates.
Include Halftone Screen and Include Transfer Function Control print specifications for high-end commercial print jobs. Consult your printer before selecting these options.
Transparent Whites Displays white areas as transparent. This option is available only for images in Bitmap mode.
