PLEASE bring back file support for opening EPS files- that's the only reason I rebought the new version of ELements when I got my new computer- VERY disappointed that feature doesn't exist. I'm an editor and need to send vectors that I've made notes on to my graphic design person (who lives in another country). I can't get illustrator- it's too expensive to buy for just that one feature...I saw that there is a workaround, but I do not have an earlier version of Elements to get the file from ...

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Photoshop Elements 15 Can No Longer Open EPS docs!.

I used to be able to open .eps documents on my old version of Photoshop. Now I find out I can no longer open them. WTF! I had to buy an updated version because my old version encountered an error that could not be fixed without uninstalling and my disk got ruined in flooding of my home. Now they tell me I have to buy a DIFFERENT program to do something I was able to do before. Very unhappy!

CHERYL IN FRANCE:  
I have one solution.  Instead of going back to an earlier version, go upward.  Photoshop 6 or better has file> open smart file - which will open your file format.  When it opens you will be given the familiar dialog box where files reside. I know you like PS Elements instead of an expensive program.  The only other solution is for you to save your files, then uninstall and reinstall your PS Elements.  You do not say which version you are using.  Could you have an older version?  I have versions 2, 3, 4, 8, 10, 11, 14, in elements, and in Photoshop I have 6 and better. I won't recommend Light Room because it's hard to open files but it does open all of them.

Cheryl,
I want to add, Elements does not have the File> Open Smart File -- But Photoshop has this in any version.  Photoshop is the go-to whenever I cannot open a file in Elements.  As I do that, elements learns what the other program did and returns to its usual function.  Having many Photoshop's on one computer, they all begin to mimic each other.  That takes time, so I find a temporary work-around.
