Hi fellow istockers!


Hope you can help? I cannot seem to get the right compatible file for my EPS upload (IS send me an email after upload stage saying its been rejected as not an Adobe Illustrator 10 compatible EPS file). My A4 pattern repeat artwork is created in ai CS3, which I have just started to use. The pattern is placed into an A4 clipping mask with an A4 rectangle placed over that and cropped. Then I save as a JPEG & save as a Illustrator CS3 EPS. Somewhere in this process I must be doing something wrong as when I open up the EPS file in text editor the top line of the file description reads 'PS-Adobe -3.1 EPSF3.1'. IS need an EPS 3.0 or lower! Hope this make sense. Any suggestions?


Thanks JoJo

When you save an EPS file, a box opens with the EPS options.  At the top is the Version: Illustrator CS3 EPS(in your case) will show as default but in the drop down you can select the version Illustrator 10.

Hi there,


Thanks for your reply, I believe I tried this way, but I will give it another go and keep my fingers crossed.


When I open this file in text editor its now reading 'PS- Adobe - 3.1 EPSF3.0', so hopefully it will be accepted! I will let you know.


Thanks jojo100

Hi again,


Think I have the right EPS file! but now to is rejected for this reason '++EPS10++

Please ensure that you are indicating the file version and identifying any transparency effects used in your file clearly in your Image Description. This information is critical for our clients, who may not be able to edit files containing transparencies.
Is a clipping mask in CS3 thought of as a transparency? or is it the crop rectangle on top? and by file version are they meaning EPS 10?
Thanks again if you can help! Jojo100

Hi Jojo100,


I would suggest you check in the Illustration forum section http://www.istockphoto.com/forum_messages.php?threadid=337311&page=1


This explains the requirements for submitting AI10 EPS files.  I think you need to indicate that it is an EPS10 file version in your description and need to provide a details of transparency effects if used in your file.


Hope this helps.

Hi GeorgeManga,


Thanks for your reply, sorry not replied sooner as been away on holiday!

So is a clipping mask in CS3 thought of as a transparency? or is it the crop rectangle on top?' If this is the case then this is where my problem is and I just need to indicate this in my image description.


Thanks in advance. Jojo100
