There is not much info on the web about .Net processing eps image. Has anybody got any idea (or suggestions)?

    I just read (on a web page here the other day) that Word supports EPS - so there is an EPS filter somewhere in Office atleast... Probably not so helpful, but still :)

    Have you looked at ImageMagick library?
    It's very powerful...
    I think there is a way of creating an object inside VB.Net (magick.Convert("image.jpg", "image.eps")), but if not you could use the command line interface:
    Executing this external command in VB.Net: convert "image.jpg" "image.eps"
