Way back in 1992, Adobe created a standard graphics file format known as EPS. The EPS file extension contains both text and graphics to describe how the vector image is drawn. EPS or Encapsulated PostScript file extension is considered a good choice of format for vector graphic illustrations.
If you have stumbled upon one of these files, let me tell you that you can’t view the file with a native Windows 10 photo viewer. To open or edit EPS files, you would need a vector-based image editing tool. Few photo viewer like IrfanView, GIMP, etc. can open the EPS file, but you can’t edit it.
