Chapter 27. EXPORTING > Exporting as Vector Images

Exporting as Vector Images

There are quite a few options for exporting as vector files. This is very helpful for placing FreeHand artwork in page layout programs or for working with other applications.

To export as EPS files:

1.
Choose one of the following formats:

  • Generic EPS saves vectors in an Encapsulated PostScript file without any preview. This is the smallest format but is difficult to work with in page layout programs.

  • Macintosh EPS (Win) saves EPS file with a PICT preview.

  • MS-DOS EPS (Mac) saves the EPS file with a TIFF preview.

  • EPS with TIFF preview (Win) also saves the EPS file with a TIFF preview.

  • QuarkXPress EPS saves the file in the best possible format for importing into QuarkXPress.

  • DCS2 EPS creates a pre-separated EPS that is usually used with OPI pre-press software.

2.
Click the Setup button to select the other options 7.

3.
Choose Include FreeHand document to add the native FreeHand document to the EPS file. This makes it possible to edit the file later using FreeHand.

4.
Choose Include Fonts in EPS to add the font information necessary to print the file. (See the sidebar on this page for an explanation of what including the fonts means.)

5.
Choose the color conversion as follows:

  • CMYK for standard process output and color separations.

  • RGB for use in an image-editing application such as Macromedia Fireworks.

  • CMYK and RGB for print applications with a PostScript RIP such as Illustrator or Photoshop 4 or higher.
