Thanks, Fred. I will see if I can save the EPS into a PDF format - of the right size, I guess? - so that I can import it into FrameMaker.
PNG would also be fine for my purpose, since it is a company logo that needs to be changed in my older documents. So, I will also try Alison's advice.

Your recollection is absolutely correct regarding FrameMaker only displaying a low-res raster image for EPS graphics. And that's only if the EPS file actually contains the TIFF preview--many EPS files don't include the preview image because it is basically a waste, and in those cases you only get a gray rectangle on screen. But a better option for import (in my experience...) is PDF, which displays beautifully and prints as well as you would expect. -Fred Ridder ________________________________ Date: Thu, 6 Mar 2014 15:46:06 -0500 Subject: Re: Having problems with importing an EPS file into FrameMaker ...

Instead, it uses a TIF image which, as you noticed, is pretty horrible. When you print to PDF, however, it'll look just fine. Unless there's some overriding reason you need it to be lovely in Frame, I wouldn't worry about it. If there is, try converting to SVG, which Frame handles just fine and is also a vector format.

I am trying to import a graphic - with only four colors in it - (it is in EPS format) and am having some bizarre difficulties. When I view the EPS file on my Windows system using PS_view, it looks perfectly fine - even when zoomed in. However, for some reason, the file comes into FrameMaker in a tiny 103 x 50 resolution (I didn't see any option to rasterize it at a larger resolution or dpi?) and the result when zoomed up a bit, is horrible. The rasterized resampling of the few colors in the graphic results in an unusably bad quality image. If I externally rasterize the EPS into TIF using Photoshop set to NO anti-alias and with a resolution of 1800 dpi (I know this is a bit overkill, but I am trying to minimize jaggies along the curves of the graphic), it works! But the resulting TIF file is over 25 Megabytes and I would like to avoid that - should I try LZW compression when saving perhaps? Also, I am using an older version of Photoshop (CS3) for this work, and after I rasterize into Photoshop at 1800, I cannot seem to find the option to save the file in PNG format. So, am using TIF. Is there something about/in the EPS file to begin with, such that FrameMaker seems to want to rasterize it into a 103 x 50 image? Is there a way to change that "option"? Z
