Using & modifying eps files?

May 10, 2017

Per past tips from Tom K, my go to source for editable graphics was eps files which I imported into powerpoint, then ungrouped and edited. Easy, fast, and free! However, apparently Microsoft no longer allows use of eps files. I don't have $ to spend (I am a volunteer teacher) and no real graphics skill. What do I do now?

This link might help you.

2 caveats: 1. I don't know when this was written.

2. He mentions Inkscape which is free, but I've not had good luck with it opening .eps files. If you can get the same file in .ai, it can open them, then edit, or export.

Here are some free sources I use. Note that even on some that claim to be free, individual pieces may be more restricted. A lot of these have several forms. Inkscape can open ai, and can open jpg and png. is my best source.

This may be heavy on medical images, but that's where I work.
