Creating Your Own EPS Graphics

InDesign can interpret almost any PostScript file you throw at it, as long as it’s in the form of an EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) file. You could, for example, take a PostScript output file from a Unix system and place it in your InDesign document. Because InDesign can interpret the PostScript, it can give you an accurate preview of what the graphic will look like when you print.
