How Do I Open an EPS File?


The EPS, or Encapsulated Postscript file format, serves as a container for vector-based graphics and bitmap images, which you can open and edit using professional graphic editing applications such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. The free image viewer EPS Viewer also lets you open, view, and even resize EPS files. Further, you can use Microsoft Word 2013 to open EPS files if you prefer to not install any additional third-party software.

Opening EPS Files

  • Navigate to the location of the EPS file using File Explorer. Right-click the EPS file, then select “Open With” to bring up a list of apps on your computer. Select an application such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop or InDesign to open the EPS file. If you don’t have any of these applications installed on your computer, you can either get a free trial from or opt to have the free application EPS Viewer installed. To open an EPS file in Word 2013, click “Insert” on the Office ribbon, then click the "Pictures" option. Select the EPS file from your hard drive and then click "Open."
