Graphics to File, color, postscript etc.



Dear Group,

assume I have a piece graphics (output of Plot3D) in my 3.0.1 notebook,
named fig.

Now I can use

Display["fig.ps",fig,"PSImage"]
this give me a very low resolution postscript file in color.

Now
Display["fig.ps",fig,"PSImage",ImageResolution->300]

Gives me a nice resolution, but some of my ticsmarks are lost. I have
played with ImageSize, but that doesn't seem to give me back my
tickmarks.

Optimally I would like to use "EPS":

Display["fig.eps",fig,"EPS"],
now I have the colours and scalable resolution, unfortunately I loose
mathematica's fonts; I have at some time seen a pointer at to
mathsource where you can download the fonts and send them to the
printer (has anyone got that pointer). This is not really a solution
since the image should be submitted to a journal, and I dont expect
them to be able to send the fonts to their "printer". Is there a fix
for the "EPS" environment?

I have also tried to go over a GIF, which I can convert to a nice
postscript file, unfortunately I loose some tickmarks again:

Display["fig.gif",fig,"GIF"]

Any help out there?
