I worked on a couple of vector images in Illustrator CC, and saved them both as EPS and SVG. For some reason, the EPS files are around 2 MB and the SVG files are around 30 kB. It is the same exact graphic, saved without changing the artboard size, etc. I know that EPS also saves a bitmap within itself, but then making the artboard smaller did not result in a change in the size. Is it due to the bitmap bundled with EPS? If so, can I change the compression on the bitmap, or remove it completely?
Unfortunately I cannot use the SVG, because I will be embedding these images into LaTeX. But I would like to make the EPS files as small as the SVGs. What causes the drastic difference in size?
