I feel so badly that my question seemed to stop the light-hearted banter
that was going on ;?(.

To rephrase my question,

1) I am sending the output of my workflow to press via a PostScript
process (let's not worry whether it is PDF or a PS/PRN file at this
point).

2) Is there a quality difference between a Word doc that has all the
graphics, EPS, tiff, copied in rather than linked?

3) Additionally, how are EPS files stored inside Word? As WMF or is the
EPS format retained?

4) I know most graphics are converted to PNG when stored inside Word.
Are there any exceptions?


Cheers,

Sean

What happens to graphics copied into a Word 2002 document? By that, I
mean using Insert > Picture and placing the graphic by pasting not by
linking. For example, I know Word stores most rasters internally as
PNGs. Does
anyone know an exception to this? What happens to vectors, and EPS? Are
they stored internally in WMF or
EMF format, or what? Is there any loss of quality in such images? If so,
why?
