Convert EPS to SVG 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.

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a resolution-independent, open-standard file format. It is based on Extensible Markup Language (XML), uses vector graphics, and supports limited animation. The main benefit of using an SVG file is, as the name implies, its scalability. This file type can be resized without a loss in image quality. In addition, SVG is unique in that it is not an image format. Instead, it is an XML-based standard that provides information for creating two-dimensional vector images.
SVG files open readily in most web browsers, such as Firefox or Microsoft Edge. In addition, since SVG is an XML file, you can view the XML-associated text in any common text editor, such as Windows Notepad or Brackets for macOS.
It is possible to use Adobe programs for opening and editing SVG files. Just be sure to install the SVG Kit for Adobe Creative Suite plug-in first. Converting SVG files is possible with the aid of a few online tools. For conversion to non-vector file types, try our SVG to GIF or SVG to PDF tools. To convert to vector files like SVG into JPG, try our SVG to JPG or SVG to PNG tools.
