I am making logos in Inkscape for sale. I don't own Illustrator and I just purchased Photoshop, no skills with that one. I have a customer who wants to know if she can edit the logo in photoshop? I can save my Inkscape logo as eps file. How to edit it with Photoshop? I tried to open it, but that's all I can do...

  • I wonder why you would want your customer to be able to edit the logo you designed for them.

Short answer: no, you can not edit an EPS from a vector application directly in Photoshop.

Slightly longer and more meaningful answer: You can not directly edit the vector shapes, points, lines, or fills of an EPS file saved from a different application inside of Photoshop but you can manipulate colors and appearance using Photoshop's adjustment layers and you can add artwork (layers, type, etc.) over the EPS file.

See also this question which may give you a better understanding of Photoshop's EPS handling.

  • Thank you for your answer. I don't need to edit vector shapes, let's say I have a vector logo saved in eps format, it has 3 objects: vector image, and text: name and tagline. I need to be able to separate this 3 thing (or ungroup) in photoshop, to move them around or make a new layout.. Is that possible or should I make that logo from scratch in Photoshop only? For the people who are asking eps file? I mean, so they can edit them in Photoshop.

  • @Katarina - It depends. If all 3 items are not overlapping, you could use Photoshop's selection tools and "change" the layout. If they are overlapping, you're better off editing the file with a tool that understands EPS natively.
