Is there something I'm missing, or can this file just not be edited in photoshop?
If this is indeed the case, is there any free/really cheap (Illustrator = not cheap) way for me to edit it?
I'm running Windows, by the way.
Thanks in advance for any help.
EPS files are most commonly used to transport vector based images, like logos, into print documents. However, they can be used to save raster based images too, like photographs.
If the file is saved as a vector EPS, editing the file a vector application would be the best bet.
Inkscape is an option—I've not used it—but it's open source vector software, and with a plugin, can open and edit EPS files.

Why in the crap doesn't photoshop have this ability? Just to get you to buy more adobe products?
Its range and wealth of vector tools would make PS a huge programme, if combines. It's a widely featured and useful as PS, but just used for a very different process of design.
I think it makes sense to keep the applications separate as both are such excellent tools I'd not want them to compromise any features.
