EPS FILE FORMAT
« on: February 27, 2008, 05:25:21 AM »
A a new PM-user I wonder why EPS is not supported as a format. Or am I perhaps overlooking something?

If you save your EPS files as EPS-TIFF, we can show them.  Otherwise PM would have to render Postscript which is by no means a simple or speedy task.

EPS-TIFF files have a small preview embedded in them and Photo Mechanic can show them quickly.

How? What I mean are EPS-files from Photoshop. We have lots of them, but alas we can't see them in PM.

When you saved them, did you include a TIFF (8 bits/pixel) Preview?
