How To Open And View An EPS File? All That You Need To Know

Understanding What An EPS File Is.
The EPS is a file extension and means an Encapsulated Post Script. They are generally used by design professionals and artists for purposes such as drawing, creating images and layouts.
An EPS file contains both textual information as well as an image that explains how a vector is supposed to be drawn, however, along with it, also comes a bitmap preview image, which is already "encapsulated" within the file.

Earlier versions of AI were based on an EPS format.

It is worth nothing that an Encapsulated Post Script file may also use an EPSF or an EPSI format at times.

The EPS format is used for an application such as the Adobe Illustrator which is used by professionals such as designers, artists, and visual creators.

How to Open an EPS File
It is the vector based applications that are used for opening EPS files. The problem with other types of an application while opening an EPS file is that they likely rasterize or flatten out the file, thus rendering the vector information not possible to edit. On the other hand, EPS files can be cropped, resized and rotated.
Given that EPS files are used to send images from one operating system to another, it is always better to open it up on a Windows platform, no matter whichever platform it originated from.

Converting Your EPS file

Although there are some tools available online that you can use to convert your EPS file to another format, we need to understand that this process is not like converting a text file from one format to another. The conversion of an EPS file needs to be done carefully where you have to ensure that the vectors are preserved so that the images inside are worked with as they originally were.

Many online softwares cannot accomplish this and hence the need for a professional software.

1) Rotating the image
2) Panning the image
3) Zooming in and out of the image
4) Resizing the image
5) Converting the image to various file formats
6) Converting the file while it is open
