Might be related to this issue, though the details differ somewhat, so I could be wrong...
This is one of many acknowledged bugs that can be found in the Known Bug List here in the Report an Issue section of the forum.
It can also be downloaded as a database file from: http://www.4shared.com/file/8orL8apk/FMP_Bugs.html
Anything new on this? The workaround shown is: "Save image to different file format. EPS is a dying format and this is Adobe's issue but wanted to make FMI aware of it."
We can't find any file format other than EPS that carries clipping paths accurately (CRUCIAL for us) when images are imported into Filemaker 11 containers (Mac OS 10.6.4, Photoshop CS5). We tried TIF, PSD, JPG, etc. We thought Photoshop PDF would do it, but the PC platform refuses to load Photoshop PDFs (says "No files of the specified type were found in the specified folder).
Thank you for your post.

Thanks to "wendyjcs" for mentioning this thread in her similar posting at:
She also received an "out of memory" error message. However, I did not get the out of memory message with Mac OS X 10.6.6 on an Intel iMac and 2 GB RAM.
The original post by another customer can be found at:
In essence, it appears CS4 EPS files can be imported, but not CS5 EPS files.
Our Development and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) departments are aware of this issue, but no other information is available at this time. I am attaching this thread to the original reported issue, so if any additional information becomes available, I will let you know.
STILL a problem.
Mac OS 10.8.2. Filemaker 11.0v4
I am trying to create a system to manage graphics files imported as References.
Completely chokes ("Out for Memory") if there is an EPS file in the folder to be imported.
Also does it if the Thumbnails are included with CS5 .PSD files.
This has obviously been a documented problem for several years. Is it ever going to fixed?
