First of all, your post is rather rambling and hard to understand. I
don't see any problem with using proper punctuation, grammar, and
capitalization (capitalisation for those with a penchance for UK
spellings). In fact, I recommend it!

EPS is a *vector* graphic format. Well, you can include in bitmap
images, but EPS is basically vectors.

See this:

Anyway, you can't ADD resolution to something once it has been scaled
down. It is impossible.

Also, EPS is pretty poor at showing images until it is actually
printed, and can be hard to work with for the novice.

Hope this helps!
