How to Convert Adobe JPEG to EPS

by Joe Lewis

EPS, or encapsulated postscript, format has certain advantages over JPEG format. EPS is less compressed and therefore holds better quality images. In addition, EPS files can store text and images. The conversion of JPEG to EPS produces images with better qualities and files that can contain text information alongside the image. The JPEG-to-EPS conversion can be done online or with dedicated software.

Software Conversion

Install an EPS conversion software. Image Converter Plus is an example. You can buy and download such programs from the websites of the manufacturers. Some converters such as Universal Converter are free to download.

Select the JPEG image for conversion. Do this by first right-clicking the image and selecting "Convert to" in the sub-menu. Choose the target format as EPS.

Click "Start" for the conversion to proceed.

Photoshop Conversion

Open the JPEG file in Adobe Photoshop. You can either right-click the JPEG file and choose "Open with Photoshop" or launch Photoshop and then open the JPEG image by clicking the "File" menu and selecting "Open."

Click the "File" menu again and select "Save as."

Change the output format to "Photoshop EPS" or ".EPS" in the drop-down menu of the Save dialog box.

Save the JPEG as an EPS file.
