Reducing the size of an EPS file is the same as saving it on Adobe Illustrator but with a few extra steps. Here are the four steps on how to reduce it.

  • Step 1: Open Adobe Illustrator, Click ‘File’ and ‘Save As’

    To get started on reducing the file size of the EPS image, launch Adobe Illustrator and create/open your image. Then, go to the menu bar and click on ‘File’ followed by ‘Save As’ in the dropdown.

  • Step 2: Choose ‘Illustrator EPS (*.EPS)’

    A dialog box will open and from there you can save your image as ‘Illustrator EPS (*.EPS)’. Then click on the Save button.

  • Step 3: Click ‘Custom…’

    Next, another dialog box will open after you hit the Save button called the EPS Options. From there you can click on the dropdown near the word ‘Custom…’ where you can edit the details of the image.
