Printers like using what they are familiar with and what they perceive as
being stable (can't really blame them). Paint Shop Pro creates good quality
TIF, GIF, BMP, and JPG files. They should not be a problem for a printer as
far as I know. In most cases, you would only create bitmap in EPS format if
you needed a clipping path. If that is the case, then Photoshop is the way
to go. If you are creating vector graphics, then I would (and do) use

Paint Shop Pro has a nice screen grabber, the interface is simple, and it is
easy to accomplish most of the tasks that we need for our docs. I use
Photoshop when creating specialized graphics for our HTML help. Company
logos, browse buttons, etc.
