Converting PDF to EPS Format

If you want to convert PDF to EPS without using text tools and have some additional options, like croping the image, use Gimp.

Gimp is installed on our thinlinc terminals, if you need it for your home computer or notebook you can get the newest version here: Official Homepage

Step by Step Guide

  • Open the PDF file with File > Open from the Gimp Menu.

  • An import Window Appears
    • step1.png

    • At the top you see all the Pages in the opened PDF and can select which you want to open
    • Alternatively you can click on Select All or type in the Range of pages to be selected
    • With "Open Pages as" you can select how Gimp should handle the pages. If you are not experienced with graphic programs, choose images instead of layers.
    • Under Resolution you can set the resolution Gimp should display the imported product. Choose 100 pixels/inch for Web / Presentation, 300 pixels/inch for printing.
  • When everything is set, hit import.
  • You could now edit the image in Gimp
  • After you are done, select File > Export As

  • In this Window rename the ending from .pdf to .eps and select EPS in the dropdown menu at the bottom right.
