my eps files are close to 40 mb if i resize with bicubic and make them 1000X1000 it makes the file a manageable file almost 3 mb. is this acceptable?



i really do not know the best size or best way to resize for these files. i have quite a few but haven't got them as additional formats yet.



the 2 i have on are the really large files but i tend to think there must be a more acceptable file size

Does it really matter what size the file has when it is a vector file? A big file takes more space in the Dreamstime server. Anyway it is the customer who buys the picture you should worry about. If the customer uses Illustator there is no problem with a smaller file.



I think that the EPS file should be bigger than the ordinary one, othervice there is no need to buy one (in case the buyer does not use Illustrator).

Hi,



What program are you using to save the EPS file?



If you are using Photoshop, it is useless to save EPS files, as they will not be vectors, they will simply be very large bitmap files (due to the low compression of the EPS format).



EPS is meant for use when saving with vector software such as Illustrator or CorelDRAW. These programs will output a proper EPS file, which will be resolution independent, and maintain the same quality no matter how much it is scaled (up or down).

Inkscape will do the great job also. Although it's not good to use gradients with it.

All my vectors are saved (and drawn) with Inkscape.

EDITED: ok, I realized, it's an ouuuld thread.

I guess you already manage eps-files well, Denise... :)

One thing you can try, is saving your EPS with a JPG compression. That's what I do for most of my packaging production. There is very little to no loss of quality and you will make significant saving on the file size. Just make sure that you printer is capable of printing Level 3 post script (we have some china printer that couldn't).



Hope it helps.
