I was givin an .eps file to work with in InDesign. When I view the eps file in photoshop I see the original picture on one background layer. In Indesign I only see the person in the picture (his surroundings are gone. When I move the file in indesign it looks like there is some sort of clipping path that I am moving but I cant see this in photoshop. Im guessing the path is created in a psd file??? The problem is I need to move the position of the guy in the file but just doing so with the eps screwes up the look of the file in Indesign.

EPS - Encapsulated PostScript, file format that supports both vector graphics and bitmap images.   An EPS file is usually used for combination artwork or charts and graphs. Generally, an EPS file cannot be edited except by the software program that created it.  

What are the versions you are using (InDesign and Photoshop)?  Did you place the file?
