EPS files are often used to save artwork, such as logos and drawings. They are a common format used for transferring image data between different operating systems. The files are supported by several different drawing programs and vector graphic editing applications. You can convert EPS files to standard bitmap formats such as .PDF, .JPG, .PNG, and .TIFF using programs such as Illustrator, Photoshop, and CorelDRAW.

NOTE: Adobe Photoshop Elements 11 and later no longer supports EPS files. The EPS format is still supported by Adobe Photoshop.
