I purchased an image that said it was available in AI and EPS file formats. I never got the option to download it as an EPS file.I don't have illustrator to open an AI file it provided as the only option. Help please.
For images that state type as AI/EPS means: they are basic Illustrator/Vector files and also have EPS type embedded in it. That is: you can use this file type (EPS) and open in Photoshop- in this case this won't be considered a vector file. But if the need is for a vector (.ai) only then Illustrator is the key product to be used. Therefore we see it as AI/EPS.
If you have any 3rd party software- not Photoshop/Illustrator, to operate on EPS files then Adobe doesn't guarantee any successful working operation of files.
Hope this helps.
