    I have a ton of cdl and eps files all from vector cliparts. I can open eps with photoshop but how do you open cdl files.

    Another thing. How can you use these imagines in wordpress, The only thing i can think of is convert it to jpeg or bmp , is there another way? Wordpress does not support these files.

    if you want to open an EPS as a proper vector (editable) try corel draw.

    You can't really use the images in wordpress without converting them to a common format. An EPS can't be viewed in a browser, so you will have to convert them to gif or jpg or whatever

    Open it via CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator.
    You need to convert it to jpeg, png, or gif for WP.

    try it with photoshop or inkscape. i'm not sure for the cdl but eps works with photoshop (or at least illustrator).

    you could try .svg for the web. some browsers already support it (firefox). to edit svg inkscape does its job.

    thanks for the info, i tried cdl in phot shop but that is ok i do not need ti i have the files in both cdl and eps, i can delete all the cdl files.

    I did not know I had to convert the files in order to use them, i thought there was a way but i guess not.

    I guess I can do what i been doing, I open in photo shop them convert it to jepg then open in mspaint and do my crop and edit, seems to work and i have never did anything in photoshop before but convert.

    thanks again
