eps file format

Hi,

I'd like to write a paper with figures in eps format. Since the paper is for
one of Elseviers journals the eps-figures have to meet the following
requirements:
- all colors have to be in the rgb color space - this seems to be true for the
files I generate.
- it should include a 8bit preview/header at a resolution of 72dpi - no idea
how to generate this
- allowed fonts are: Arial, Courier, Helvetica, Times, Symbol - this is
something I can set in the rc file, although I have no idea what is true in
latex rendered parts

Can somebody tell me please, whether matplotlib indeed creates colors in the
rgb color space and answer the other two questions, too? Would be really
great ...

TIA
Christian

I think you can use
http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/gsview/epstool.htm
but do not know what dpi control you'll have.

Thanks, John and Alan,

That was fast!

As for the fonts, yes, you can control this with rc.

Sure, but what about the latex rendered parts? (I wonder whether it actually
matters, but I'd like to be sure, because there so little time left ...)

It works, thanks. The installation is easy. Setting the resolution in dpi can
be done by giving the flag --dpi <resolution>.

If you set your rc settings to one of the latex's psnfss fonts (times,
helvetica, courier are all supported), you will get the fonts you are looking
for. See http://www.scipy.org/Cookbook/Matplotlib/UsingTex.
