.EPS File Extension

Encapsulated PostScript File

Image File
EPS is an acronym for "Encapsulated PostScript". Files with the EPS extension are documents created using the PostScript concatenative programming language developed by Adobe Systems and used mostly within desktop publishing. PostScript files are self-contained documents that follow the DSC (Document Structuring Conventions) set of standards.

The Encapsulated PostScript format is mostly used for saving documents which can contain text, raster graphics, vector graphics and a set of page formatting properties. Additionally, EPS files can contain printing instructions and a thumbnail image. This allows users to print the files directly using a PostScript compatible printer (equipped with onboard raster image processor) without having to open them in an application first.

EPS files can also be imported into other PostScript documents (.PS extension). This makes document creation easier and allows file segmentation.

How to open EPS Files

EPS files can be opened with many vector graphics editing programs and drawing applications making them a popular choice for image transfer across different operating systems.
