ART AGE SOFTWARE ELIMINATES CROSS PLATFORM EPS HASSLES WITH THE RELEASE OF EPS
BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, WA, April 2, 1999 - Art Age Software today released EPS
Mover 1.0.2, the newest addition to its line of utility applications for
EPS Mover gives Macintosh users the power to convert the preview of any valid
EPS file from one format to another, eliminating cross-platform EPS hassles. By
supporting conversions among PICT, TIFF and EPSI preview formats, EPS Mover
allows Macintosh users to place and view a PC, UNIX or Macintosh EPS file in
any application that supports placement of EPS files. With EPS Mover, as long
as an EPS file contains a preview (PICT, TIFF or EPSI), there is no longer any
need to print it to see what is inside the "gray box."
EPS Mover can also strip the preview from an EPS file. So, if an EPS file has a
damaged preview, EPS Mover offers a cost-effective and elegant solution.
EPS Mover further enhances the cross-platform utility of EPS files by enabling
users to convert line termination. A file's line termination determines how the
lines of PostScript code will be displayed in a text editor. By customizing an
EPS files' line termination, users can more easily read EPS files in text
editors on Macintosh, PC and Unix platforms. This becomes very valuable when
lines of PostScript need to be edited manually.
Although EPS Mover runs only on Macintosh, its impact extends beyond the
Macintosh market as Macintosh users can prepare EPS files for use on PCs and
EPS Mover requires a Macintosh computer with a PowerPC processor running System
7.0 or later. The application is distributed electronically and can be
downloaded for 30-day trial from the Art Age Software web site,
http://members.aol.com/ArtAge, or from a variety of other online sources. The
cost is $14.95 per copy.
