# How to convert the latex file into postscript file

I have faced one problem. Actually, I'm working on IEEE paper, and they said that I have to convert my .tex files into postscript file

How can I get postscript file? I'm working with WinEdt 8.0 version

Should I convert first my .jpg figures into .eps format by using Photoshop, or it is not necessary step?

For figures, I use the following code:

\begin{figure}
\centering
\includegraphics[scale=0.3, angle=0]{Files/xxx.jpg}
\caption[xxx xxxxxx xxxxx.]{xxx xxxxxx xxxxx.}
\label{fig1}
\end{figure}


Everything work perfect with me .. I can get .pdf file .. But .ps file still I don't how to find it

• You need to compile using latex (not pdflatex). Your images have to converted to .ps or .eps using a tool like Imagemagik. You'll get a DVI file which can be converted using dvips. – Johannes_B Sep 7 '14 at 18:56
• Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. – Johannes_B Sep 7 '14 at 19:06
• I don't know if it would work but you can convert the pdf file to ps. However, that may not be what they want. (I do this and then convert back to pdf as some journal systems won't accept pdf output directly from pdfLaTeX and some printers don't like it either.) On GNU/Linux, you can use pdf2ps or pdftops for this. Not sure about Windows, though. – cfr Sep 7 '14 at 19:07
• @cfr That is a good idea, but chances are high that the journal wants the sources (tex and pictures) for further processing (converting xml and back). – Johannes_B Sep 7 '14 at 19:17
• @Aradnix: eps, please. epstopdf should work. – Martin Schröder Sep 8 '14 at 8:10
