I added an image field to my user on this page admin/config/people and marked the allowed file extensions to be eps, png, jpg. However, it doesn't allow me to upload .eps file, but only .png and .jpg.

I get this message:

The specified file gold coins elements vector5.eps could not be uploaded. Only files with the following extensions are allowed: jpg jpeg gif png txt doc xls pdf ppt pps odt ods odp.

How can I upload an .eps file?

I'm pretty sure EPS files can't be displayed in browsers, which may be why you're having a problem. There's a module which will allow for EPS files to be converted on upload, which may solve your particular issue:


  • its not that I want it displayed. its that it won't let me upload it . so that module wont help me

  • Sorry. Perhaps you could use the core upload field or CCK Filefield module instead of imagefield? Jun 6, 2016 at 18:47

I had to change the field type to "file" , and then I can add eps files
