Whether you’re working as a graphic designer or receiving files as a client, you’ll most likely come across all sorts of different file formats. Encapsulated PostScript File (EPS) and Adobe Illustrator Artwork (AI) are two examples of the most common Illustrator file types you’ll have to deal with. They’re both native formats, which is extremely useful as this means they will preserve the editing capabilities within Adobe Illustrator.

So why make this conversion from AI to EPS and vice versa? At a basic level, the difference between the two is that EPS is an open format (understandable by other applications), whereas an AI file is used primarily by Adobe Illustrator. So EPS files could be a better file type to send your designs to clients, but AI files could offer different types of options and layouts which are not available in other formats.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn both how to convert EPS to AI and how to convert AI to EPS in Adobe Illustrator. We’ll be using a video game logo as an example throughout the tutorial, but feel free to use your own files as you follow along step by step.
