About EPS

EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) is a file format based on a subset of the PostScript language and designed for graphic data exchange between applications.

The abbreviation EPS stands for the popular graphic format, the full name of which is Encapsulated PostScript. It was created in 1992 by the famous American company Adobe.

It is an extension of earlier versions of Illustrator and is considered a precursor to PDF. Designed for printing images on printers. Used to transfer data between graphical programs and different operating systems. Using special applications or an online image EPS converter, any raster images can be converted to this high quality.

Advantages of EPS

In a file with this extension, the information is saved as text and two types of graphics: 2D-vector and raster. The data is created using a lightweight version of PostScript language. You can create one page in one file — the final result of working in Illustrator or Photoshop. When opened in raster programs, the vector image is rasterized and converted to separate pixels.

This type of data saving has many advantages, so it is widely used in graphics:

  • The printed image looks the same as on the computer screen.
  • Support of color schemes RGB, Grayscale, CMYK, Multi-channel, LAB is carried out.
  • Pictures contain a preview copy — it is easier to make a preview when selecting pictures.
  • Small images can be easily enlarged to the required size without compromising on quality, blurred or broken pixels.
  • Extension can be easily converted to other graphic formats using a EPS converter.

The data executed in Illustrator opens in all Adobe programs: Acrobat, Photoshop, InDesign. They are reproduced without distortion in many graphical editors: CorelDRAW, GIMP, Inkscape and two dozen others.

Where EPS format is used

In such files artists, designers, designers, designers working with Adobe programs save work. Raster are used in computer design and published on websites. Files with this extension are used in printing houses — in publishing applications for layout of layouts to create business cards, for printing posters and banners.

When ordering printing products customers are invited to submit a sketch in EPS, which can contain any combination of vector and raster. If the layout is created in another application, it is convenient to use our online EPS converter to convert it.

Differences between EPS and other popular formats

Extension of the “Illustrator” program is a good way to save information for specialists — you can combine a vector and a raster in it at once.

Ordinary PC users prefer more common formats for viewing images:

  • JPG — supports 8-bit RGB colors, good quality and minimal compression. If a picture is repeatedly edited and overwritten at a larger size, the quality slightly deteriorates.
  • PNG — in this format, the brightness of color rendering is well-preserved. In this format raster drawings in which there are extensive zones with uniform colors. Unlike GIF, pictures look more realistic — PNG supports 16 million colors.

In compressed formats such as JPG it is more convenient to store on your computer home images or downloaded from the Internet pictures — it saves space on your hard drive. Lightweight files are easier to send by mail or upload online — they are quicker to download.

Format conversion

With the help of EPS converter you can immediately get a bitmap image in this format, if you do not have the right program at hand, but you need to transfer the image in EPS format. This is more profitable than building it from scratch. We suggest you use our convenient converter. You can convert popular graphics extensions such as TIFF to EPSPNG to EPSPSD to EPSJPG to EPS.

If you want to trace your raster images into the EPS format, you can use the Autotrace Tracer available on our website, the result will be presented in the form of a vector format.

Step-by-step conversion instructions:

  • After pressing the “Browse” button, select the file on your computer. You can see the list of formats on “Image Formats” page, but we are sure to support most formats, so try converting first and then watch.
  • Specify a color depth of 8-bit (in this case the image will be in grayscale) or 24-bit to save the image in color. By checking the box to the left of the Preview bar, the file will have a reduced version of the image for quick display of the icon, which will allow you to view the file in the Explorer in the fastest possible way, as you will not need to load the image into the computer’s memory.
  • When converting, you can immediately resize the image by setting the width and height of the image, as well as setting the DPI.
  • To specify the size, you just need to specify only one size in height or width and tick the box next to “Save aspect ratio”. If the “Save aspect ratio” option is enabled, the aspect ratio will remain the same.
  • After selecting the file and setting the parameters, click “Convert”.

Depending on your image, the process may take from a few seconds to a few minutes. After conversion, the result can be saved on your computer or cloud.
