Editors' review

The EPS file format is used for vector-based graphics and other types of images, and it's a fairly common format, supported by such popular programs as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign, and QuarkXPress. Still, not all image-viewing programs support EPS, and if you're not a graphic designer you may not have a program that can handle it. EPS Viewer is a basic program that lets you view and convert EPS files. It's pretty bare-bones, but it will do the trick if you have an EPS file and no other way to open it.

The program's interface is quite plain and intuitive. As soon as the program is launched, it opens a dialog box that lets you navigate to the desired EPS files. Once the image is open, you can zoom in and out, and rotate or resize the image. Files can be saved in JPEG, GIF, BMP, PNG, or TIFF format, which makes the conversion process quite easy. And that's really the extent of what EPS Viewer does. It has no menus, no other features, and no Help file. If you're desperate for a way to open and view EPS files, this program isn't a bad choice. Just be aware that you're not going to be able to do much besides open EPS images and convert them to other file formats.

EPS Viewer installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Too much adware - not worth downloading."

    July 08, 2013   |   By Lexotron

    Version: EPS viewer 3.2

    Pros

    Converts EPS to a number of formats as described.

    Cons

    Full of adware that reinstalls itself each time you run the program. Arcade games, browser toolbars, etc.

    Summary

    It works, but it's not worth the hassle of uninstalling adware every time you want to convert an EPS.

    "It works OK, but be careful"

    June 18, 2013   |   By DrDoofenschmirtz

    Version: EPS viewer 3.2

    Pros

    You can see the EPS file.

    Cons

    Very tricky additional software *options

    Summary

    I almost didn't download this after reading the reviews. But I did. And I was able to use the software with no extra software installed.

    During the download process I noticed a couple tiny checkboxes in the text that no one reads. You have to uncheck those to avoid adding AVG.

    Then there were two or three screens with a big green "accept" (or next) button in the bottom right with a greyed out "decline" button on the bottom left. You'd think the decline button wouldn't work, but it does. If you hit that, you still get the EPS viewer, just not the software they're trying to add.

    If you run that gauntlet (which I did successfully), you'll get the EPS viewer and nothing else. It works - you can see the file. If you want a higher resolution, you can just type larger numbers into the boxes at the top. There really aren't many options, but that was OK for me. I just wanted to SEE the EPS files, and I could.

    This software does what it says and does it for free. The authors are trying to make some money by installing some other stuff. This is one of the business models used by makers of "Freeware". You all know it. You likely came to Cnet to find some clean software that you didn't have to pay for. Well, if you're as smart as you think you are, go ahead and download this software. Run the gauntlet... if you dare!

    "Should have read the reviews! This is JUNK!"

    May 22, 2013   |   By KellyH78

    Version: EPS viewer 3.2

    Pros

    Haven't found one yet.

    Cons

    Installs Sweetpacks toolbar, arcade games, and other junk software that needed to be removed.

    Summary

    Don't bother downloading this! CNET says it has been scanned for viruses. Apparently, that doesn't mean it has been scanned for malware also.

    Found this removal guide: http://malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-sweetpacks-toolbar/

    "Can view EPS but adds unwanted junk"

    April 29, 2013   |   By KristenSRTS

    Version: EPS viewer 3.2

    Pros

    I can now view .eps files. There's an option up top to adjust the resolution; for some reason the files seem to open at a very low resolution but are easily changed.

    Cons

    It installs a toolbar and some other extensions, EVEN WHEN you de-select them during installation. This is extremely disappointing.

    Summary

    The reason I come to CNET for downloads is because this junk isn't supposed to happen with a recommended product/download. I'm extremely disappointed. The program itself works fine, but I wouldn't recommend the download because you're adding who-knows-what-else to your computer along with the EPS Viewer.

    "Do not install! Unwanted toolbar and other junk."

    April 18, 2013   |   By aaronjaylev

    Version: EPS viewer 3.2

    Pros

    You can view eps files.

    Cons

    When you install this software, it will change your search options in your web browser, install unwanted toolbars, install unwanted software. I'm sorry I every installed this software.

    Summary

    Do not install this. It has too much junk to be useful. CNet should remove this.

    "Do NOT install this!"

    February 18, 2013   |   By GAdoc007

    Version: EPS viewer 3.2

    Pros

    Does let you view eps files. But, amazingly they are blurry even though they are vector files.

    Cons

    Hijacks Google Chrome. Installs new toolbar, changes your home page and load settings for Chrome, and who knows what else I haven't found yet. Very unethical. I can't believe the editors at CNET gave this thing an approval rating. I usually trust CNET quite a lot, and I am disappointed to have been misled like this.

    Summary

    Don't get it.

    "Works just fine"

    December 21, 2012   |   By bespoke47

    Version: EPS viewer 3.2

    Pros

    Simple eps viewer does just what it says.

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    All the extra add junk and so forth at the start of installing just hit don't accept and it won't add a bunch of useless junk you don't want or need.
