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.

Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster-based file type that compresses images for portability. PNG images can have RGB or RGBA colors and support transparency, which makes them perfect for use in icons, or graphic designs. PNG also supports animations with better transparency (try our GIF to APNG). The benefits of using PNG are Plus, PNG is an open format that uses lossless compression.
Generally, PNG files will open in your operating system’s default image viewer. PNG files are also easily viewable on all web browsers. If you are having trouble opening PNG files, use our PNG to JPG, PNG to WebP, or PNG to BMP converters.
Alternative programs such as GIMP or Adobe Photoshop are useful for opening and editing PNG files. PNG files are a bit larger than other file types, so exercise caution when adding them to a web page. One interesting feature of PNG files is the ability to create transparency in the image, particularly a transparent background. To accomplish this, try this transparent background tool.
