When I save a file as an eps in photoshop 2020, it displays correctly in Indesign in typical view.

Saving the eps in photoshop 2021, it's rounding the corners in Indesign in the typical view. If I switch over to high quality, it display correctly. Anyone know what's going on? I'd like it to view normally in typical view, but the only way I can figure it out is to use Photoshop 2020. 

Thanks!

Why do you save your file as an eps? It's an obsolete format and shouldn't be used anymore.

Good point. I guess I was just so used to saving it as eps since I've been doing it for so long. Saving to TIFF solves the problem.

Saving as PSD files is even better, in many cases.

And if there's any text involved, save as PDP (which the file extension for a Photoshop PDF)

Well it's just the preview isn't it? So hardly an issue. 

 

I'm in a workflow that demands eps files, and it's simple why it's used - because it takes years to get any change through regulatory. 

 

Anyway -there are reasons why/why not. 

 

EPS might be obsolete, but it is still supported by Adobe for archaic workflows. And if Adobe are going to support the file format - then they should support it.

That being said of course - the advice so far is correct - if you don't need to save as EPS then don't. 

But be aware that PSD and Tiff files inserted to InDesign are rasterised to the native resolution of the Photoshop file.

 

The only format that supports vector when placed in InDesign from Photoshop is PDF. 

So if you've used vector shapes, masks, or live text layers - then make sure to save as PDF.

 

Or else your PSD or Tiff file is rasterised on export or output from InDesign.

Yes  indeed! Don't get me wrong; I'm still totally onboard with EPS. In fact I get a bit miffed when people say it's obsolete.

Specifically to Photoshop EPS though... it's not the best available and the reasons for using it in the past are not a current concern. (speaking as guy who remembers DCS, OPI replacements and all the fun things to get files through vintage prepress systems)

Yes it was just in preview. I just found it odd, the exact same file saved in an older version of Photoshop showed correctly, whereas the latest version of photoshop showed rounded corners. It's faster for me to preview the file in typical display and I was just annoyed seeing rounded corners on everything. Since transitioning to TIFF it displays correctly no matter what version or preview setting.
