Description buzzdeee 2006-10-11 14:54:54 UTC

embedding an *eps file as a logo or "whatever" generally works. but the fonts 
in the eps are looking very ugly. Ill append the *eps logo and a document 
containing the logo. viewing and printing the eps file from gimp, inkscape, 
kgostview,... everywhere else despite in OpenOffice the logo is looking good.

OOo cannot interpret postscript itself. So it displays a preview image if
present (as is the case with your sample) - or tries to run helper programs
(ps2edit, convert, ghostscript) to create a preview.

The previews generated using the helper-programs usually provide better quality
than the low-res preview included in the eps itself.

All the applications you mentioned use ghostscript to render the eps. If you
print to a postscript file with OOo and then view the file, it will look good as

It is only a display-problem if you print to postscript printers.
