EPS stands for Encapsulated PostScript. Files that contain the .eps file extension often contain images and text. The EPS files are used by a variety of computer drawing applications. In some cases, a file with a .eps extension may also contain font design information.
The EPS file format supports transparency, linked files and thumbnail imaging of documents. It also allows certain types of files to be opened up across multiple operating systems, ensuring that a user can open the file even if he or she is not running on the same operating system or with the same computer application as the individual who created the file initially.
