ExtensionSmallImg What is .ps file?

The files with the .ps extension are image files that have been saved in the Adobe PostScript language. These files can contain images, text or a combination of both. The images saved in the PostScript language may contain vector graphics, raster graphics and text. They can be printed directly by a PostScript printer without being opened in any application. PS files have majorly been replaced by other page layout file formats, such as .PDF. But they are still supported by many printers and applications. They can generally be opened by any printer utility that supports PostScript. Important: PS files can be converted to PDF files using Acrobat Distiller, included with Adobe Acrobat.
