I have been spending a lot of time to try to find a solution to the problem where GIMP 2.8 64-bit with Ghostscript cannot open EPS images.
After the “Import from PostScript” dialog you will get an error similar to: Could not interpret Postscript file ‘C:\logo.eps’ Opening ‘C:\logo.eps’ failed
The answer to this problem can be found in this bug report (thanks to Jako Grobler) but this is the short version.
Starting with GIMP 2.8.x you no longer need to install Ghostscript to be able to open EPS images, instead the dll is in included with the GIMP-installation. This means you can forget about the instructions about setting the GS_PROG environment variable, trying to switch between 32-bit and 64-bit versions etc.
However at least up until the latest version of GIMP (2.8.4) there is something wrong with the included dll.
So this is the solution:
- If you have not already, download and install Ghostscript 64-bit
- Copy gsdll64.dll from your Ghostscript bin folder (Eg: C:\Program Files\gs\gs9.07\bin\) to the GIMP bin folder (Eg: C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin\)
- In the GIMP bin folder first a) Rename the file libgs-8.dll to libgs-8.old, and then b) Rename gsdll64.dll to libgs-8.dll
- Restart GIMP and opening EPS images should now work
Tried on Windows 7 64-bit with GIMP 2.8.4 64-bit and Ghostscript 9.07 64-bit
Thanks, solution works for Gimp 2.8.4, Windows7 64 ultimate.
I can’t thank you enough. I’ve spent about an hour following other instructions and nothing worked.
You have seriously saved my sanity. I was getting very close to a hair-pulling-out foot-stomping meltdown!
Again thank you, bookmarked your site for future 🙂
Didn’t work for windows 8. Love to get notification if you have a solution.
HI, I just wanted to give a tip to all that are having troubles with eps files and GIMP. I tried everything and nothing worked! The only solution I came up with that is fail safe, is to convert your eps file into a jpeg (or any other type that GIMP can read.)
Hope I have helped!
Yes, thank you for this tutorial, it worked where no others worked.
it worked. thanks.
Andrea – I tried your solution and… Yeh…. it’s Jpeg, not a vector, so it kind of loosing it’s appeal…
But I guess that’s all we got left….
We’ll just have to wait until the GIMP guys figure out Win8.
It’s better than nothing, so Thanks….
32bit Gimp 2.8.6 (the latest at that moment) doesn’t work with EPS correctly for me… No GS_PROG required, libgs-8.dll included. But doesn’t work – couldn’t open the EPS file, after forced replacement by gs 9.0.7 library – the error “eps-load… haven’t return the value”…
My solution is to use GS directly to convert to PNG with transparency support:
1) Dowload and install GS (http://www.ghostscript.com/download/gsdnld.html)
2) Make a bat file with name eps2png.bat in gs bin folder (f.e. C:\Program Files\gs\gs9.07\bin)
3) Write to the bat file a line:
gswin32c -dSAFER -dBATCH -dEPSFitPage -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pngalpha -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 -r600 -sOutputFile=”%~d1%~p1%~n1.png” %1
4) Repalce “gswin32c” with “gswin64c” for 64bit systems
5) Replace “-r600” win “-rXXX” where XXX is DPI if need more or less
6) Make an shortcut (link) on that BAT file and put into SendTo folder (it’s hidden and is located in C:\Users\ in Win7)
Use it! Popup menu on EPS file, Send to, Your BAT. 🙂
Thank you so much.
Your method works like a charm. No other methods I’ve comed upon have worked for me until now.
I can’t thank you enough,
Thank you!!! Works great — you saved me so much time and effort!
OMG finally an answer that worked! Thanks you so much!
DUUUUUUUUUDDDEE!!!!! What a pain in the ass. I wish I would have found this 12 hours ago. Thank you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Simply download Gimp builds from my website and you done. Don’t need all this. 🙂
This bug is fixed in Gimp 2.8.6
Thank you very much.
This works great!
Sorry, I’m a little dummy with these things.
I don’t understand step 6, maybe because I have Win 8??
Can anyone help please? I have Win 8 64 bit.
Also, how do I know if I need to change DPI number?
You can get into the SendTo folder by using a special command:
1) Press Win + R on your keyboard and you will see a Run command window
2) use a command “shell:sendto” to get into the required folder
It works on WinXP, Win7, Win8
Thank you for your response, I did what you offered and did found the SendTo folder, but still can’t make it work.
I think there’s something that I don’t understand in the instructions.
It works. Thanks a lot!
Thank you so much. The solution worked on windows 7 64bit, GIMP 2 2.8.2
It works in Windows 8(64bit).
GIMP 2.8.4+GS 9.10(64bit)
Worked for me – much appreciated.
It works fine in Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Gimp 2.8.10 + GS 9.10
Perfect! Thanks so much for the tip.
Thanks that works for me on Windows 8 64bit!
Ditto all the thanks above!!
Works great !! MANY Thanks !!
Many thanks. This finally solved my issue to open EPS files with GIMP. Worked flawlessly.
Thank you so much. Save me a lot of time.
Vista 64bit. Gimp 2.8.10 + GS9.10
how to Write to the bat file a line ?
didnt understand step 3
1) Open Notepad.exe
2) Write into editor:
gswin32c -dSAFER -dBATCH -dEPSFitPage -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=pngalpha -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4 -r600 -sOutputFile=”%~d1%~p1%~n1.png” %1
3) Save As the file with name eps2png.bat (using *.* mask option in dialog)
working with win7, Gimp 7.8.10, thanks!
Thank you man, you’re a live safer, I’ve been fighting this for more than an hour, when I finally stumbled across this! Thank you!! Now I just need to find a solution for linux ubuntu… lol also having some problems there :SS
Thanks running windows 8.1 – can now open EPS 🙂
THANK YOU TJITJING!!
This has been a frustrating problem for me for so long! This fix worked perfectly.
You are a truly talented individual who cares enough to share!
YES! Works!! Thank you SO MUCH!.
Gimp 2.8.10 & Win 7 Pro x64
Nice job! This bug has annoyed me for some time now. But no more!
It works super with this solution.
I did it with;
gs910w64 and gimp-2.8.10
I just checked it on Windows 8.1 and it worked great!!!
Thank you! Deserves a share and a mention on twitter!
Thank you so much for this! I have been trying various workarounds for hours, and no system variables settings, alternate downloads, or anything else was working for me. But your solution fixed everything. Great post!
Finally! Worked for me too! Win 8, 64bit. Thanks!
Thank you very very much! This worked on Windows 8.1 and 64bit.
Thanks that worked on Win 7 64 bit.
Thanks very much… now I can continue to work on my site.
Excellent solution! I was having exactly this problem. This worked with Windows 8.1 (64-bit) and GIMP 2.8.10 (64-bit), along with GhostScript 9.14 (64-bit). Thanks so much for providing this solution. I wonder why that DLL is not working properly in the original installation of GIMP? In any case it fixed the issue of not loading EPS files perfectly, and without much fuss.
works for me, gimp 2.8.10
Thank’s mate work great Windows 8.1
Thank you. I was having exactly this problem and it is fixed now. This solution worked for Windows7 64 bit and Gimp 2.8.
THANK YOU! Been going mad since I moved over to Win7-64 Ultimate from 32-bit XP, now it’s all sorted and back to working – get yourself a beer on me 🙂
THANKS–worked great! Gimp 2.8.10 and Windows 7 Pro
Perfect, worked a treat.
Thnx. It worked!!
It works now for Gimp 2.8.10 Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Just an FYI. This is now working for me on win 8. I’m using win 8 update 1 64 bit, Gimp 2.8.10, and GS 9.14.
You are da man! Like many others I scoured for hours trying to find a solution and your tip worked like a gem. Thanks so much.
Spent the whole morning debugging this… finally got it thanks to your help. Much appreciated!!!
Thanks a lot !
Thank you so much!
It worked!!!!! I spend a lot of time trying to solve this problem in my Win 8 computer.
The instructions worked perfectly for Gimp 2.8.10 running with Ghostscript 9.14 and Windows 7 64 bit.
Thanks a bunch, but is this the BEST way to fix this problem permanently?
Still works as of June 22nd, like mentioned by Cognizant Impiety !
Thanks a lot! Worked for me. (Win7 64bit)
Thank you – your fix for opening eps files in Gimp worked.
Thanks for the info – worked like a dream
Thank you so much! Awesome job and advice.
Thank you very much! I tried so many other online workarounds to the GIMP eps situation and this worked immediately. You officially rock.
Excellent job. Worked for me perfectly. Using Windows 8.1, Gimp 2.8.10 and GhostScript 9.14 (All 64 bits) Searched forever looking for an easy and elegant fix and found it here. Thank you very much.
I am also having trouble with Inkscape (0.48.4) opening EPS files. Is there a similar solution for that? Thanks in advance.
Very much appreciated. Solution worked great.
Windows 7 x64 / GIMP 2.8.4
Thank you soo much!
Worked great for me after 5 restarts and much frustration trying the GS_PRO method.
Windows 7 64-bit, GIMP 2.8.10
This fix worked great on a Windows 8.1 machine using GIMP 2.8.14 and Ghost Script 9.14. Quick and easy, thanks very much.
Love it! Thanks! So straightforward and best of all – it works!
(Windows 8.1 64-bit)
This works. Thanks
thanks so much
Thanks very much. Very easy-to-understand-instructions. Works perfect sept 2014.
Running GIMP 2.8 and GhostScript 9.15 on Windows 8.1 – struggled to find a working solution (everybody suggesting amending the ‘GS_PROG’ variable) until I found this. THANK YOU for being one of those heroes!
I am running 2.8.14 and I do not appear to have a gsdll64.dll file….any idea what I should do. Thanks in advance.
It worked perfectly! Thank you 🙂
Works for me, thank you! Had the problem while using the newest gimp and the newest gs, both 64bit.. 🙂
Hi it worked for Gimp 2.8.10 in Windows Home premium 64 bit. Thanks.
Works like a charm. Thank you!!
Hi, worked brilliantly on my Windows 8.1 64bit.
Though the imported pic is not displayed as vectors, does anyone know if this is true for all eps imported in gimp.
I would have expected, that gimp could understand a vector graphic.
Many thanks, Daniel
Thanks, you quickly solved my problem.
Awesome. Saved my day!
Bumped into this problem. This still works for GIMP 2.8.14 on windows 8.1 and ghostscript 15. Actually I was amazed that bug still isn’t fixed.
Thank-you sir! After reading a bunch of the comments, I realize
how much work you saved me! Worked like a charm.
Worked perfectly for me, thanks. Win 8.1, Gimp 2.8.14, Ghostscript 9.15.
Did not work for me… Win 7 64-bit pro. GS 9.15 and tried GIMP 2.8.10, 2.8.14 and 2.8.4.
Thank you ! Work for Win 8. 🙂
Thanks, needed this. Works on GIMP 2.8.14 running on Win8 64-bit and using GS 9.15 library.
This Works! Thank you!
You don’t actually need to install GhostScript, just open the GS installer using 7-zip or similar and pull the dll out of the $_OUTDIR\bin\ directory within.
Thanks for the solution!
Fantastic!!! Thank you!!!
Wow, thanks a lot. Great tut, your solution worked perfectly.
Did it with GS 9.15 on Windows 8.1, GIMP 2.8.14 and had perfect results first time round, thank you.
Thank you !! Works perfectly on Windows 8.1 – Gimp 2.8.14..
This should be on Gimp’s website ..
Thanks! You saved me a ton of aggravation! Got things up and running in 5 minutes. Really appreciate this easy-to-follow solution.
I’m using a Vista 32 bit system. Placing the short link to the .bat file directly in the C:\users folder does’nt work in my case. What would the correct folder be for Vista?
Thanks much in advance!
WORKED flawlessly for me too. Many thanks.
Man you are amazing – this worked.
Awesome it works! Thank you for sharing!!
I’ve spent hours on this; editing environment variables etc etc
It worked using the method above
Ghostscript 9.15 for Windows (64 bit)
It worked for me perfectly! Thank you so much!
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Ghostscript 9.15 for Windows (64 bit)
Used 7zip to extract the gs 9.15 dll from the installer on Win7 64, Gimp 2.8.14
Works like a charm mate, thanks !!
Oh my gosh! Thanx for the solution man! not only Saved my day, but also my work was shorter for like 2-3 hours 🙂 I am using Win 8.1 64bit with GIMP 2.8.14 and GhostScript 9.15 64bit and this solution works! again thanx man! Internet needs more heroes like you
Nice. Worked as described. Thank you
Many thanks – was driving me nuts trying to run GIMP on a particular PC.
WIN 7 Pro
Thank you!!!!! It works for me too.
SO PLEASED that this works!!! I spent over an hour trying to find a fix to this, and I can’t believe it was this simple. I’m so mad that this took so long.
I tried other “how to’s” with no success and this one solved the problem with ease.
Thank you very much for sharing! Highly appreciated..
Thanks! Worked great!
Thank you so much. Why isn’t this on Gimps website?
Similar with above comments, I have spent ages to find the solutions, loaded many different things. This is a real straightforward solution.
it works with Gimp 2.8.14
GIMP 2.8.14 and GS 9.16 on Windows 8.1 64-bit. This solution worked like a charm. Thanks!
Thank you !
Thank you very much. It really worked :). God bless you!
Worked like a charm#
thank you, (Win7 Pro 64 bit + Gimp 2.8.14 + gs9.16)
A+++ Thanks so much … worked perfectly for me.
Thank you very much, this solution worked! (and others don’t).
Thank you very much for your post.
Saved me a lot of time.
Thanks! win 7- 64 bit, worked.
Worked just like it was supposed to!
Win 7-64 bit,
Just noticed that I am using an old version of GIMP, so I updated to the latest
GIMP 2.8.14 and tried to open an eps file again. Same result as before. It did not work. So then I went through the dll replacement process listed above, and it now works perfectly.
Bottom line, the latest version of GIMP still needs this dll fix. But when you do it, it works perfectly.
Win 7-64 bit
I upgraded to GIMP 2.8.14 and had to do the dll replacement.
This works fine if the dll comes from Ghostscript 9.14.
It does NOT work when the dll comes from Ghostscript 9.16.
Win 8.1-64 bit
Works like a charm! Thanks!
Works perfectly for me using the dll from Ghostscript 9.16. Was getting a little tetchy when I couldn’t get it to work previously so cheers.
Win 7-64 bit
Perfect solution! Thanks!
Win 8.1 64bit
You are the freaking man! Thanks!
I am getting so frustrated. I have followed these instructions on two different computers and I’m getting nowhere. I’ve created the bat file and wrote the code to it and I still cannot open my EPS file in GIMP. The initial solution of copying the dll files over to gimp from gs etc allows me to open the file in GIMP, but it’s not transparent. Obviously with so many happy campers here… I must be doing something wrong.
Works with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, Gimp 2.8.14 64bit / GS 9.16 64bit. GS_PROG solution didn’t work, but this did! Thank you!
Thank you very much for the ultimate and quick solution !! one of the easiest solution I have ever found.
U da man! Didn’t work at first till I realised I’d renamed the DLL wrongly. Thanks for solution.
Hey Guys, thanks for that fix! It doesnt happen very often that you get a fix out of the internet that you really need!
This is magic, thanks dude.
Tried this solution on Win-7 Pro 64 GIMP 2.8.14 & GS 9.16, it works!
Thanks a lot for this tip!
Worked for me too. Using Gimp 2.8.14 and Ghostscript 9.16.
Thank you so much, you saved me!
Thank you! Saved me a huge amount of frustration with a client
Worked fine in Windows 7 and works find in Windows 8. If Adobe didn’t charge astronomical prices for Photoshop we should have to download Gimp and go throug this. Thanks for the solution.
Miss typed. Works fine in Windows 10
worked great, thank you!
Thanks so much – problem sorted!
Thanks! That fixed it for me.
Thanks! Worked for me on Windows 10 (64 bit) with Gimp 2.8.14 and Ghostscript 9.16
This really works!
That Worked for Me too on Windows7 64! Thank you so much!
Thanks so much for this!
Worked for me! Thank you for your effort!
Just tried on a Windows 10 64, worked beautifully! Thanks so much, I really appreciate it! 🙂

Excellent! Many thanks. Surfing for a while trying to figure out what’s wrong, given that ghostscript working well with inkscape but not with Gimp. Curious not being yet solved at the last version of Gimp 2 since you (and Jako Grobler) reported this. Now working well in Windows 8.1, Gimp 2.8.20 and Ghostscript 9.21 (64 bit).
Thank you very much! I solved my problem by following the instructions. I have windows 10 home edition, GIMP 2.8.20 and GostScript 9.21 64 bits
Thank you. You are a life saver!
Works well with Win7/gs9.21/GIMP2.8

Reporting it works! september 2017
Wasted so much tiome trying other options. This worked in 2 minutes!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!
Copy and paste “Windows 10 64 bit solution” from above comments. Thank you! This worked for me:
1.If you have not already, download and install Ghostscript 64-bit
2.Copy gsdll64.dll from your Ghostscript bin folder (Eg: C:Program Filesgsgs9.07bin) to the GIMP bin folder (Eg: C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\bin)
3.In the GIMP bin folder first a) Rename the file libgs-8.dll to libgs-8.old, and then b) Rename gsdll64.dll to libgs-8.dll
4.Restart GIMP and opening EPS images should now work.
Thank you very much! It works for me 🙂
Doesn’t work on Windows 7 Enterprise & Gimp 2.10.12 :(.
