    I have 2 important questions,

    1) when i import a EPS duotone picture is quark,
    the images seems to be only in grayscale.
    Plus, it looks realy bad, i know quark only give preview,
    but its worst then usual.

    2) When i print an EPS images from quark, its all
    pixalated, i guess thats cause i dont have a
    postscript printer right?

    1) quark doesn't preview any image reliably; it's always going to "dumb-down" the image to save memory. this goes double for EPS images, as quark renders them at an even lower resolution than non-vector images. that might have something to do with the way previews are saved into EPS documents, but in any case the fact is that EPS files just look like crap in quark.

    2) correct. you either need a postscript printer, or a pre-print RIP package such as ghostscript.

    Another work around for printing is to create a pdf of the file and print from acrobat.
