Drawing use in photoshop

Does anyone know of a way to save plans or elevations to high resolution format that can be used in photoshop?

Everything I save as results in a very low quality image.

The PlotMaker will go there, too

3 easy steps.

Step 1: save view/plan/elevation as a .pmk file.

Step 2: open .pmk in PlotMaker and from there save as .eps format.

Step 3: open in Photoshop (these also open in Illustrator as vector files)

I've used this technique for quite some time with great success. I like to create eps files and then make documents in a page layout program such as Adobe InDesign.

However, since this latest upgrade the fonts are not carrying through to the eps file. I get an error message when saving in PlotMaker saying that the fonts are missing.

I've tried several fonts, they are there in ArchiCAD when I create the drawing, they are available in InDesign but PlotMaker seems to miss them. Any thoughts?
