How to Combine EPS Images in Adobe Photoshop

The Encapsulated PostScript file format is often used to export vector or raster graphics. Since EPS files are frequently used to create logos and other designs, merging two or more EPS files can be useful in keeping the images from these files together in one file while keeping them on separate layers.

  • Step 1: Open EPS Images

    The first step you will be doing is to open the software, so click on the logo shortcut of Adobe Photoshop or whichever folder it is stored in to launch it. As it opens and displays a blank canvas, go to “File” then “Open” to select which EPS images you want to add. Each file will then open separately. Additionally, a rasterized image format window will open for you to check whether or not you want to edit the width, height, and resolution.

  • Step 2: Combine Separated Files

    As you have noticed, the files open in separate tabs so you would want them to be within one tab. Open the Layer Panel and click on “Create a New layer” of the first EPS file. Then go to the second EPS file and press “Ctrl + A” to select the entire artboard and copy by clicking “Ctrl + C.” Go back to the first EPS file then press “Ctrl + P” where you can see the second file now in the newly added layer.

  • Step 3: Rename Layers

    Continue to open and merge more photos with distinct layers until you are pleased with the number of images in your EPS file. The more you add layers and EPS images, the more confusing it might become. To avoid a lack of organization, rename each of the layers to their appropriate title or how you see fit. With the opened Layers Panel, double click on the word “Layer 1” or whichever layer you want to rename then proceed to encode the new label you want for that layer.

  • Step 4: Save Your File

    Once you are satisfied with the placement of the EPS files and the arrangement or layout of the completed file, you can then proceed to save it. For future purposes or if you want to edit it another time, it is suggested you save it as a PSD file to retain the layers. But if you want to present it to a client or a larger audience, you may want to save it as a PNG file to retain the transparent background.
