Dragging EPS files onto TeXShop produces PDF files of exactly the same 
size as the original EPS. That's what I do now for creating PDF figures 
(suitable for inclusion in pdfTeX) out of Mathematica graphs: save all 
the graphs as EPS files, then drag them onto TeXShop. I think this 
launches a script ps2pdf in the background, I'm not quite sure; but 
whatever it does, it does it very efficiently!
