PS (PostScript) Viewer

PS (PostScript) Viewer is a free for use software tool and it can be used to open .ps image files. The PS file extension is associated with Adobe PostScript and is best known as a page description language in electronic and desktop publishing areas. Image saved in PostScript, may contain vector graphics, raster graphics or text and can be printed directly by a PostScript printer without being opened in application.
There are 3 versions of PostScript language:
  • First version was released in 1984
  • Second version (PostScript Level2) was introduced in 1991 and included several improvements in speed and reliability, support for in-RIP separations, image decompression, support for composite fonts, and the form mechanism for caching reusable content.
  • Third version (PostScript 3) was introduced by Adobe at the end of 1997 and came with better color handling and new filters.
Today, Adobe PostScript 3 is the worldwide printing and imaging standard that is used by print service providers, publishers, corporations, and government agencies. Adobe PostScript enables reliable printing of visually rich documents. These days, .ps files been replaced by other page layout formats, such as PDF.
