Hello! We seem to be having some strange issues with clipped .eps files saved in Photoshop and imported from Filemaker Pro. I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to be asking in, but here goes: Every once in awhile when a file is imported, it's imported with an extremely high-quality preview, rather then the more basic preview as Indesign is set to. To fix it, we have to save the Indesign document then close the document, then re-open it, and then it shows the proper low-res preview. Has anyone else experienced this sort of issue?
@BozemanSeattle, When you say imported from Filemaker pro, does it mean that you edit the .eps file that is saved from Photoshop further edited inside Filemaker Pro? If that is the case, then what edits do you do, and how are you then importing it to InDesign? Is it by copy/pasting or File > Place command within InDesign? What settings have you set for Display Performance within the preferences of InDesign?
Hello! Yes, the RAW files are edited in Photoshop, clipped then saved as eps files which are they inputted into the Filemaker Pro database. We then use the "place" command within Filemaker to put them into Indesign, and really have never had issues until recently. I'm thinking there's a way I'm saving the files in PS (most likely having to do with the "preview" settings that pop up when you save the eps), but we're having a hard time nailing it down. The strange thing is it doesn't always happen with all files, and all of the other previews are the low-res like our settings have them set at.
You might want to look into this help document to see Preview section: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/photoshop/cs/using/WSfd1234e1c4b69f30ea53e 41001031ab64-7773a.html
An 8‑bit preview is in color and a 1‑bit preview is in black and white with a jagged appearance. An 8‑bit preview creates a larger file size than a 1‑bit preview.
Encoding - Determines the way image data is delivered to a PostScript output device. Encoding options are described below.
What are you choosing for Preview and Encoding depends on what is the quality of the resultant EPS that you're going to place within InDesign.
