Hello,

I currently need to take a picture and make it a monotone color image in photoshop.  I can do this no problem.  Where I run into a problem is that I must place this image in PageMaker 7.0.  I have Photoshop 5.0 and Illustrator 8.0.  What is the process for taking the image from Photoshop to Illustrator to PageMaker without loosing image quality???

Thanks much

Are you using illustrator because you need a vector image? If not you can bring it straight from photoshop to pagemaker and loose nothing.

I just started a new job and there is a two color brochure at printer.  They are missing a picture which previous designer didn't include with everything.  I got the full color picture.  I have located all of her other pictures on the hard drive and they are saved as illustrator eps which was then imported into photoshop.  I know how to bring straight from photoshop into indesign, but it seems that I must take it from photoshop to illustrator to pagemaker to work.

I've never had to take a graphic through illustrator to get it into pagemaker. You can save a photoshop file as an .eps, if that's the format you want, then you can just drag the picture into your pagemaker window. If it's a large file it'll probably ask you if you want to save it all in the file, or if you want it linked.

Hi nkoenigs,

Will Scarlet is right, there's no need to go thru the extra Illustrator step, you can skip that. The reason why your machine tell you the other images are Illustrator EPS is that (I'm assuming you're in a Windows environment) the EPS extension is associated to Illustrator. Id that's the case, then any image saved as EPS, regardless of what app created it, will show as an Illustrator EPS in Windows Explorer. Do as Will suggests and save your Photoshop file as EPS and them import it directly into PageMaker.

Good Vibes!

Save the monochrome as a tiff. Mount the picture in Pagemaker as a Tiff.

EPS or Tiff would work with a monochrome.  If it's lineart, just use illustrator and save it out as EPS.

You may get some pixelation in pagemaker, but that's not the real quality. print it and see how it looks.
