enter image description hereI have been trying to figure this out for the last hour, but have not been able to yet. I am pretty sure this is a very basic operation. Can anyone provide me the url to a basic tutorial or just the steps? I just need to extract one icon from the grid of icons (pack of icons) that I just purchased and save it as a .png file so I can customize it with Adobe Photoshop.

If this is an eps file, it should be entirely editable? Make sure the layers are not locked. – Benteh Dec 21 '13 at 16:50

Use the Direct Selection Tool (the white arrow) to click-drag around one icon. Then Edit > Copy, File > New, Edit > Paste, File > Save As....
