.eps image looks awful on screen. - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I'm mostly an InDesign and Photoshop user. I dabble in Illustrator on occasion. Here is my problem. I have created a logo in Illustrator and saved it as an .eps. When the .eps file is placed into an InDesign, Powerpoint, Word (etc.) doent, the logo looks bitmapped/rough when it appears on the monitor. The logo also looks bimapped/rough in PDF's. The twist is that the logo looks great when I print those doents. Any suggestions or thoughts? System: PC, Pentium III O/S: Win 2000 Loads of RAM Illustrator 8...

    That's normal. It's purpose is to save processor time and RAM by using a smaller image than the one embedded.

    In InDesign, you can change this by right-clicking on that .eps and going to "Display Performance->High Quality Display".

    Hi Jonathan,

    Was sooo excited when I read your response as I'm having exactly the same problem. Illustrator image in Indesign looks great in native file, prints well from native file and pdf, but the actual pdf looks crap. Tried what you said and pumped the custom view right up in dpi - it made absolutely no difference.
