    Default Image formats - eps

    Someone has created a new logo for me. Now the person wants to know what format I need. Says that there are TWO different formats called *.eps, one created on the Mac which is vectorized and another one from Photoshop being rasterized.

    I want to be able to scale the logo and to use it for letterheads. I will have to scale it for webpages as well.

    I'm on openSUSE 11.1 using gimp. What will I be able to read in?

    Thank you, oldcpu

    I was confused because there seem to be two different formats called *.eps, depending on whether they are produced on a Mac or a Windows PC. As it turned out in the meantime gimp will happily read both

    Actually, it's VERY likely there is eps and there's Adobe Illustrator
    eps which has some AI cruft surrounding the actual eps data. This
    could include a rasterized preview blob. Using a good editor, you
    can usually edit out the junk and make a more pure eps file.

    (if that matters)

    That explains it. (No more 'VERY likely' but 'confirmed' now). Thanks.

    P.S.: Calling a non compliant format *.eps should be punished by law.
