Indeed, it is better if jpegs are used in Artworks files, just so long as
the page is portrait and the jpegs are not rotated in any way. Having a
problem with a landscape file I once ended up exporting it as a sprite,
converting to portrait jpeg and printing that from AW to circumvent the
tendency for the whole page to be 'rasterised' and sent to the printer as
a long dribble.

Given the workarounds available I have always managed to get around the
PS2 limitations and thank goodness my HP color (sic) laser copes with big
files, unlike a retired Xerox model which used to give up with big PS
