NOTE: To view an image file inside of the Submission Details page, it should be a web-friendly format (e.d. JPEG, JPG, PNG, or GIF.  Non web-friendly file formats that are shown in the acceptable files list will not display the file inside of the Submission Details page, but will be downloadable for reviewers to view offline using the appropriate software.  For example, EPS files are an Adobe format, primarily used in Photoshop. Submittable doesn't transcribe EPS files inside the Submission Details viewer as they're not web friendly, and are primarily used as a way of sending files that are still being worked on and passed between collaborators..
