  • Can't see my duotone in Illustrator CS4

    Hi! Here is a very strange problem. I have never seen it before. In Illustrator CS4 I want to place an eps duotone. Here is what I will do in Illustrator. FILE PLACE I CHOOSE THE EPS DUO... but nothing appears in Illustrator. My file is in Duotone EPS... Now, if I try with another one... This time it works!??? Curiously, some eps files in duotone dont appears in Illustrator while other one appears when I try to place them... If somebody have an idea on the nature of this problem I will surely appreciate! Sry for my english!!! Im french! Thx! W.

    By duotone .eps … I'm assuming the duotone .eps file was saved out of photoshop, or is that not true?

        Why save an eps out of photoshop?
        When you can save a psd and place it into Illustrator and have ten times the stability.

          That's what I was asking, but I guess the language barrier caused it to be read wrong.

          I'll dig around some, but knowing you're going from Photoshop to Illustrator might help others chime in.

            PSDs would be a good option. With eps the only thing that comes to mind is that you're using the wrong image preview/encoding … possibly … for your system.

                Tx for ur replies! I did not know that a psd was more stable than an eps. Since i Work in prepress I always proceed like this. And cuz before, in Quark principally, we always needeed to work wit Eps file and its seems to me that was been the right way to work. Now, I tried with a psd and it works perfectly! Psd are really stable in separation mode? W

                  Yeh Quark is fine with EPS. But Adobe products work best together with native files. Like ai. for InDesign instead of EPS (from Illustrator, e.g, you don't need to resave an eps as a .ai to place but if you're making a new file then save as .ai to place into InDesign).

                  Really depends what you're doing - but most of the time native files between Adobe apps work best.

                        My definition of data visualization is just that, the visualization of data. This could be anything from a simple Excel pie chart to something as elaborate as what the OP posted. I don't know how you've...

                        Apologies for taking this much of the OP's thread and I get what you guys are saying.

                        But data visualization is about the flow of data from there to there.

                        It might not be worth pursuing, but it just occurred to me that tilting a cube so that one of the corners is pointing directly at the viewer results in three sides of the block being visible. It doesn't...

                        I can see why she likes the scratchboard look of the blocks -- it is a nice look. As an illustrative technique, it's great. As a logo, though, it'll create potential problems for her.
