Swift 3d version 1 import eps probs

im trying to import a file into V1. Swift freezes just after the importation has comenced. I have to ctr-alt-del out of it. The File is a jpg which i have converted to eps using photoshop and freehand. Both have the same problem. The file is only small (150*150 pixels). I have reinstalled swift. I can import the erain sample eps file. but nothing else.
