    Would like to know if there is a program or some other way to view an eps file in the thumb- window and see the image like you can a jpg file.
    Thanks in advance

    The only program I know of is Adobe Bridge.

    If you have multiple files (like a bunch of clipart) you could create a .pdf from multiple files in Adobe Acrobat and just view the images from there.

    Hiya Mike,
    It can be done with Windows, but it depends on how you set up and save the file and what version of software you're using. I'm using Illustrator 9 and can view illustrator EPS thumbnails. I'm not sure, but I assume it would work for AI files too.
    Most vector clip art is normally saved as an older version of illustrator without the thumbnail option. So, if you resave the file and you select the "include document thumbnail" option, you can view it in explorer's thumbnail view.
    I just need to figure out an action that can resave all the clip art I have :(

    Edit...
    Just for kicks and giggles, I tried EPS and AI files and they both work. You have to save them as Illustrator version 7 or newer and include document thumbnail.

    Eps File

    See the problem is when you download clipart and only have an eps file to pick from. If you download a few files without stopping and changing the format and naming each you can't preview the image. What a pain.And I am working in Corel.
    And thanks for the info I'll try it

    I can view a preview in the import window in corel

    I have Paint Shop Pro 7 and I can click "browse" and select the folder or CD etc and all EPS files can be viewed in thumbnail size.

    If you save or import them as ai files, ACDsee can view them.
    Adobe Bridge is great though!

    Can't go wrong with this one:

    http://www.irfanview.com/

    does way more than just view eps files.

    best part is the cost - free
