That highly pixelated ("squares") version is just a preview of the actual image. It makes it faster to display in the program. When printed on a postscript printer, it should (theoretically) appear as it's intended to.

Slime is right.

Take that PM-document and export it to a PDF and everything will look just fine.
(PDF-export is included in PM, you just need to have any PostScript printer drivers installed)

If you would like to switch to a high res image of your EPS you can go in Pagemaker to 'file/preferences/general' and choose Graphics Display: High Resolution.

If you're on a mac, you can hold the option key and click on the image to view it at it's actual resolution.
