Convert EPS to GIF online, for free.
Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) is a file format that contains text and graphics-based instructions for drawing a vector image. An EPS file also contains an encapsulated image that displays what the final image should look like, which provides users with a low-resolution preview of the image even if they do not have the correct software to open it fully. EPS is most commonly used for creating huge hardcopy graphics, known as dry graphics.
EPS is a relatively old file format that opens in many applications. Two default programs for opening EPS are Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop. PaintShop Pro is another great program for opening EPS files. EPS is also supported by CorelDraw Graphics Suite, XnView, OpenOffice.org Draw, or Blender.
EPS can be converted to many different file types, such as AI, JPEG (EPS to JPG), PNG, GIF, TIFF, SVG, or PDF. EPS was developed by Adobe. Therefore, the best programs to use for converting EPS are Adobe applications, notably Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. A free, non-Adobe program to consider is FreeConvert's Image Converter.

Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) is a type of bitmap file format that relies on pixels to form simple images using the RGB color model. Unlike the uncompressed BMP file format, GIF uses lossless compression and supports animation without audio. The most common use of GIF is in animated form as advertisements, emotion-based replies on social media, and memes, which often go viral on the Internet.
Almost all web browsers support GIF, which gives it a distinct advantage over other image formats, such as PNG. Furthermore, GIF opens on Apple’s mobile devices, including iPhone and iPad, which makes it more popular than Adobe Flash.
GIFs open easily on almost all image-viewer applications, web browsers, and operating systems. To open a GIF for the purposes of editing it, use an application such as Adobe Photoshop. On Windows, open GIFs with Microsoft Photos, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Roxio Creator NXT Pro, and others. On macOS, use Adobe image viewers and editors, including Adobe Illustrator.
