    I need to know which version of Photoshop you are using and which PostScript level you used to create the file. I expect you are using PS Level 2 with an older Photoshop (below 6). The solution is simple, use a PostScript Level 1 plotter and it should work fine. See http://www.cadtutor.net/acad/acad2ki/atop/psplot.html for details.

    Yes well deduced young Dr Watson, I am using Photoshop 5.5 and post script plotter 2. I will try it with a postcript 1 plotter.

    I am hoping the results will be good enough to put up at a public exhibition and possibly inquiry, the mapping we are using is very detailed do you think this is the best way of getting AutoCAD images into Correll?
    Thanks

    Ah, that's a whole different question. AutoCAD into Corel Draw. Well I haven't done a tutorial on this just yet but when I last looked, the best option was to go via HPGL. Yes, I know you can import DWG files right into Draw but Draw has a great HPGL import filter that alows you to set line weights, colours etc. So what I do is set up a dummy plotter (like the PostScript technique) but use some standard HP plotter. You can download a driver but AutoCAD does come with some. Then print to file (HPGL). You'll then be able to import the HPGL file into Draw.

    Try it and let me know how you get on.
