I have Photoshop Elements 11, on a windows 7 platform, when I want to open an EPS file I get an error message stating the file type is wrong. This product claims to support this type of file.
Is this an upgrade issue or ????
Unfortunaly pse 11 dropped several supported file formats, eps being one of them.
more info: (where it says upgrade notes)
Photoshop Elements 11 no longer supports Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files. It is a dated file format that really shouldn't be edited by Photoshop Elements in the first place.
If you really need to open the file, I've sent you a private message with my email address. I would be happy to convert the file for you.
Thank you R_Kelly,
do they offer any recommendations in regard to what to do with a the program if the purpose was to work with EPS files?
Does Abode offer a similar program that will allow me to work with EPS files?
Any info would be helpful

The eps format is not really an image format like tiff, jpeg or psd, it's more a printing format (an old one) like the more common today pdf format. You can import or convert an eps or pdf file to an image format ; older versions could do that with both eps or pdf files, pse11 can only import pdf.
I suppose you are not producing your own eps files, but using (old) eps illustration libraries. The solution is simple : do a Google search for 'eps converter online free' and you'll find many software able to convert not only eps but other exotic formats.
By the way, that is an excellent reason to keep your older PSE version as well as PSE11, they can be kept together on your computer
The best program to edit an eps file would probably be Adobe Illustrator, which can edit the vector and raster elements of an eps. But it's not a cheap program, for your purposes a converter might make more sense.
Try this to open the EPS file in PSE:
1) Click File->Open As
2) Choose your EPS file
3) Choose Tiff from file format dropdown
4) Click Ok.
EPS Tiff Preview
Use File->Open As
Generic EPS (AI3,AI4,AI5,AI6,AI7, AI8,PS,EPS.AI,EPSF,EPSP)
Drop EPS Parser.8BY (C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 8/9/10\Locales\en_US\Plug-Ins) from some recent old versions in E11 Plugins folder
Hope it helps.
