Encapsulated Postscript Vector graphics (Adobe Illustrator)

eps file icon

EPS is a file extension for a graphics file format used in vector-based images in Adobe Illustrator. EPS stands for Encapsulated PostScript. An EPS file can contain text as well as graphics. It also usually contains a bit map version of the image for simpler viewing rather than the vector instructions to draw the image.

I was asked to do a machine embroidery design but the file I was given was a .eps file. I had never heard of an .eps file and needed to know if it could be converted into a .pes file. Doesn't appear so without additional software.

An eps is graphic format that is better quality than jpg for any digitiser to make your file into pes or dst or emb.

I read that most embroidery machines can read .eps files. I was interested in the conversion and if I could indeed use an .eps file to embroider with my machine.

A company that is making a large banner for us asked for logo with .eps extension. I found plenty of places to convert eps to jpg, etc., but no way to convert TO one. Now that I know it is Illustrator, I understand.

for eps you need a graphic program to show your file, ie adobe illustrator you can enlarge an eps file as big as you want but the likes of a jpeg if enlarged would go all pixels. why not save it as pdf, or capture the image to jpg.

I bought an image, it came in jpg and eps version.
when I use the jpg as a pattern to fill an object, and then save that object as jpg, the pattern moves within the object.
can I use the eps as a pattern and wont move?
