The first thing to do is update Photoshop to version 13.0.6 ASAP.
You are six versions behind.
Then, think about placing a Photoshop PSD image instead of the ancient, archaic EPS format.
This setup has been working for years. But suddenly 2 days ago, the placed EPS Photoshop files went wrong; pixelated, wrong-sized and without clipping paths. It's like I hit a wrong key. I'm not a PS expert; just use it for one client, in this configuration. Any other ideas other than an expensive upgrade?
P.S. the PSD works to end the pixelated image and the wrong sizing. But the images still loose the clipping paths.
This setup has been working for years…
Does that mean that you don't even plan to update Photoshop CS to CS6 13.0,6? That would be a grave mistake. There were many substantial bug fixes along the way.
Updating to CS 13.0.6 is completely, totally free. No expense at all.
If your issue appeared "suddenly", delete and recreate your Photoshop and your Illustrator's preferences.
But update to 13.0.6 ASAP. There's absolutely no excuse and no valid reason for staying with known buggy versions. That's just plain nonsense.
If you insist on staying with your "setup" for the reason you state, please don't bother addressing any replies to me.
As I said, I'm not using Photoshop at a high level. As soon as I catch up on this current project due 1/30, I plan to update immediately to CS 13.0.6 as you suggested. Then I'll have a little time to play with it the way I'm used to using it.
In the meantime, could you please tell me how to delete and recreate my Photoshop and my Illustrator's preferences so I can finish on time.
Thank you so much for your time.
- Don't use EPS inside Adobe's Creative Suite or Cloud. EPS is an old and outdated file type. Don't use it here anymore.
- When you want to use Photoshop Data in Illustrator, save the Photoshop file as PSD and open in Illustrator or place it into an AI file.
