You can save plots to a postscript file, (set_plot,'ps' then call
device,keywords = values to configure the postscript device with
keywords xsize, ysize, xoffset, yoffset, bits_per_pixel, filename,
color, inches, encapsulated and landscape: I think that's all of
them) but if you are representing your data as an image of some
sort, i.e. you're doing a TV or TVSCL to put the data into your
plot, it won't save you all that much, particularly in the size of
the file. If you're using plot,oplot or plots to get the data onto
the plot, you'll benefit from using the Postscript device.
See David Fanning's tutorial on making postscript plots.
He has a very nice program called PS_FORM.pro (although he recently
seemed to want to disavow any knowledge of it, I think it's quite
good) that you can use to configure your Postscript device by
presenting a widget in which all the pertinent keywords are
configurable, although it may not work in IDL 5.2, you'll just have
to give it a try and see.
