    Sounds like a colour management issue - what are your settings? PC or
    Mac? What application do you view the EPS in?

    Or are you referring to the EPS preview? Those are not colour-accurate
    but it won't matter when going to press.

    When I specify a colour of e.g. 40 C, 30 M, 40 Y and 0 Black that's
    exactly what I get when I open the EPS in let's say Photoshop and that's
    how it should be.

    Are you working with RGB or CMYK colors in the FH doent? What is the
    intended use or output method for the EPS?

    The color gamut for CMYK is much smaller than for RGB.

    Hi guys/girls,

    This is purely for screen display (have been working just with RGB), i'm
    running XP, and I viewed the rastered EPS in Photoshop 7.

    When I used the other EPS export setting ("Photoshop 4/5 RGB"), the colours
    were retained, so i'm guessing that with the standard EPS export, theres some
    default settings that I need to change?

    Is there any end user difference with an EPS generated by either of the two
    export options?

    Cheers

    Here's the secret to exporting RGB EPS files. All colors in your FH doent
    must be RGB/process mode.

    Name all colors and make sure none of them are CMYK and non of them are spot
    mode. If necessary, use the controls in the color list pop-up to 'Make RGB'
    and 'Make process'.
     

    None that I'm aware of, if the EPS is set to RGB. The main difference is in
    the kind of preview that is written, but Photoshop doesn't use the preview.
    Photoshop color settings might affect how the files open, but you would
    normally have it off for the kind of work you're doing.
