Default Graphs as eps or tiff

PC platform

I work for a group of biomedical researchers who keep data in Excel. When
they are ready to publish, they usually create graphs in Excel and copy/paste
to PowerPoint. This is fine for initial review but publishers are now
requesting the color figures (graphs, etc.) to be in eps or tiff format and
CMYK instead of RGB.

We lose data from those figures when we "save as" an eps or tiff. Also the
file becomes huge and the colors are still RGB. Very frustrating.

I took an Adobe Illustrator class to see if that would help, but the
instructor did not know how to do that and referred me to possible online
tutorials. Before I spend hours looking for an online tutorial this
specific, I thought I would check here to see if someone can help at the
Excel level.

Excel is not an image editing application, nor is PowerPoint for that matter,
which is what you are trying to do. You may be better off just getting it to
look the way you want, print it, scan it, then pull it into photoshop to
convert to cmyk and save as eps, tiff.
