Do you want better previews of your EPS graphics in QuarkXPress? One way is to convert them to PDF format. An easy way is to use Apple’s free Preview application — it comes with Mac OS X and is a capable PostScript interpreter. This means that you can open an EPS or PostScript file with it and it will convert that file to PDF format.
If the original is a vector-based logo or illustration, the resulting PDF will also be vector-based (resolution independent).
