Hi,
I have a bunch of mainly .pcd (4mb) files which I need to convert into scalable (vector) .Eps files. All I have is Photoshop and I was wondering if this is possible to do. I read that images are rasterized into bitmaps when opened in photoshop, does this mean the image loses its scalability? I need to be able to scale upto Flag size...is this possible? Is there anything special I need to do in photoshop when saving the pcd files as .eps? Will I need to get Illustrator?

Any help would be greatly appeciated

Kind Regards
Justin

Cant do it. Yes, when the images are imported into Photoshop they are rasterized and are no longer scalable. You are going to need a vector program like illustrator.

Actually, you can scale it up....

First off, setup a new canvas to the size you want it ... the flag in this case. The way I do it is open up both ps & illustrator... have your canvas ready in ps, open up your .eps files up in illustrator. Make sure the whole set of paths on your image are selected, then drag & drop it over to your canvas in ps.

At this point you will see your image with an ex'd out box around it... use the handles to fit the image to the size of your canvas and hit enter....

hope this helps

kisk: he's trying to convert to EPS, not the other way around. What he has NOW is raster.
