Freedom of Press was an application for interpreting and rasterizing PostScript files. It was developed by a company named Custom Applications. This article describes its native raster graphics format.


A Freedom of Press raster "file" consists of two files: a text-based file named info.* containing image attributes, and another file usually named output.* containing the raw bitmap. The two filenames have the same extension, which can be anything, but is usually .001, .002, etc.

Here is an example of an info file, as produced by Image Alchemy:
