EPS is an important file format in the Graphics world. Think of it as similar to a PDF file. Theoretically if you have an EPS file, you’re ready to print. Also, it’s kind of the lowest common denominator for vector art programs. Sodipodi can’t save to it. But here’s a tip from Aron Rubin at Lockheed Martin.

  1. Print the sodipodi image to a file (which will end up being a .ps or PostScript file).
  2. Open the file in gedit or some other text editor
  3. Change the first line to read “%!PS-Adobe-3.0 EPSF-3.0”
  4. Save the changes
  5. Rename the file so that the file extension is ‘.eps’

All done!
