I have been iStock exclusive for years, and when I'm now looking around a bit at the other sites (I'm soon back to independent) I've noticed that pretty much all of them seem to accept EPS10 now. Some sites maybe even require EPS10 instead of EPS8?

I'm a little confused. Should I go with EPS10 all the time, even if the file doesn't contain any transparency, or is it still a good idea to upload EPS8 if possible? How do you indies reason?

I still do all eps 8. Can't say I have any problems.

I switched to EPS10 a while ago, even on iS. No problems with that either. I'm not aware of a site that doesn't accept it, though anything's possible. But EPS8 is fine too. I have both on iS and SS.

Guess I shouldn't care too much about it then. But I remember reading somewhere that Bigstock reads IPTC data from the vector file and not the preview jpg? And EPS8 can't store IPTC data so maybe it would be easier to just use EPS10.

Do you know if Inkscape and Corel Draw supports EPS10? I know that it will rasterize transparency effects etc. but will everything else look fine?

You can upload EPS10 and EPS8 to any microstock.
If you have transparency or blending mode in your vector you should save EPS 10.
Vectors without transparency or blending mode - EPS8 is OK.
