Re: Reconstituting an emailed EPS file


The EPS is an encapsulated postscript file, basically like a postscript file without page numbers etc.. The only reason to use .eps is if he had vector images or type in the photo, then it would save those without rasterizing them, and they would print as vectors, while the photo would still be a jpeg.

When I open up a 1ds-mkII jpg it jumps to 47.5 mb when the jpeg is only a few mb.

The best thing to do is have him convert the CR2 raw's into a dng with lossless compression, this will take it down to 12mb, which should be very do-able in email. You can also FTP them if you have a lot to transfer.

Otherwise save the step and save to a high quality jpg, and compress with winzip or winrar.

Just to add a comment....

I think the guys from the Joint Photographics Expert Group deserve a bit more respect here.
They got together the best experts on image compression and studied every aspect of the subject for six years, issuing a standard that has been adopted world-wide.
There are certainly some schemes that will compress slightly better, but the trade-in cost of incompatability just isn't worth it. (Not even JPEG 2000 caught on).

If someone tells you there's a wonderful new compression technique for rasterized photographic images - think twice.

I didn't think anyone used EPSs any more. They're pretty much a relic now.
you still have to use them with spot colors as not every rip can deal with a psd file with spot channels and/or deal with transparency...
