It sure can! You just need to record an Action (Window>Actions) in Photoshop to save a file as an EPS with the required settings. Then select File>Automate>Batch to apply that action to your files. Or if you feel show-offy, you can create a droplet instead.I have PS CS6 but I don't think it can do batch conversion.
Changing the file extension never changes a file's format.Changing the file extension from jpg to eps does not work. Thanks.
Sometimes I can change the format of a document by changing the extension. Mac OS does the rest automatically. In this case, it failed.It would be useful to know why you want to convert JPG files to EPS format in order to best answer your question. Do you have an end use that can handle only EPS-format files?

Also, changing a JPEG to an EPS file may not do what you're expecting; it will not, for instance, make the contents of the file editable in Illustrator.
Yes. EPS files are useful because they can contain postscript; vector art. Simply saving a JPEG as EPS does not magically give one lines and points in the file. You will need to do a live trace or recreate the art for this. JPEGs are flattened, and do not contain any layered art.It would be useful to know why you want to convert JPG files to EPS format in order to best answer your question.
No, this is not something that works natively within the operating system. Can you provide an example where you believe it does?I am trying to include some photos taken by my iPhone in a Latex document. It is for academic publishing.

Usually they require pictures in eps format.Does the journal you are writing for have how-to information for what you're trying to do? A lot of journals do this to help people with the always-painful issue of providing graphics and images for publication. The people who publish the journal know what works for their process and what doesn't.
And there is the ability to add PostScript overlays and such. Good point.
