What is a(n) EPS file??

The EPS file extension is a file format for vector graphic representation of images and multimedia objects in a single layer. It is an open standard under ISO/IEC International Standard 1987.

The EPS file format was developed by Adobe Systems in conjunction with Aldus Corporation and Microsoft in 1989, and released publicly in 1990. The original specification was only 100 pages long because it was intended to be a small, simple format.

The EPS file format has been updated from the original to version 6.0 in November 2004, which added support for CMYK colorspace but did not add support for vector transparency types such as alpha channel, blending mode or drop shadow effects.
