scripts default iconEPS Utility Toolbox (Scripts) Publisher's description

A set of functions to generate publisher-happy EPS images

A set of functions to generate publisher-happy EPS images
EPS Utility Toolbox consists of several functions to generate EPS files that best conforms with the standard: http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/ps

Run epssetup.m first to set up the toolbox.

Toolbox Setup and Configuration
epssetup - Run this first to use this toolbox
epsfontpath - Get/set postscript font search path
epsfontalias - Get/set postscript font aliases
epsfontlist - Get the list of postscript fonts in the search path

EPS File Generation and Conversion
epswrite - Save figure as an EPS image (with fixes)
eps2raster - Convert EPS image to PNG, BMP, JPEG, or TIFF image (req. Ghostscript)

EPS File Manipulation
epsfixfonts - Make MATLAB-generated EPS file more conformed to the EPS standard
epsembedfont - Embed/de-embed postscript fonts
epssetlinestyle - Set line styles (dotted, dashed, and dash-dot)
epspreview - Add/remove TIFF preview (req. Ghostscript)

EPS File Information
epsgetbbox - Get bounding box
epsgetfonts - Get fonts used

Indivisual m-files include full command-window help text.

Some files requires Ghostscript (www.ghostscript.com) to be installed on the computer.

To set resolution and size of the EPS image:

epswrite('fig.eps','Size',[2 4],'Resolution',600);

Size (= [width height]) are specified in inches and Resolution is specified in dots per inch (higher resolution increases the precision of object placements). Type "help epswrite" in Matlab for the full list of options.

For authors preparing manuscripts to aip.org/peerx-press.org, use


to embed Symbol font as their online submission system is not equipped with Symbol font (messes up all TeX characters).

Also, use both epswrite and eps2raster for those of us using pdftex to prepare LaTeX manuscripts for publishers who do not accept PDFs or PNGs. Executing

epswrite fig.eps
eps2raster fig.eps png

creates fig.eps and fig.png. This results in identical images in two formats and, IMO, also results in better quality images than directly printing from Matlab, especially with the antialiasing support of Ghostscript.

System Requirements:

No special requirements.
Program Release Status: New Release
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
