The problem is that there are essentially two "flavours" of TeX: one

Using pdftex allows you to include PDF, PNG, and JPG graphics, whereas
tex allows only EPS. Otherwise, the differences between them are
negligible for your purposes.
To cut a long story short, to fix your problem go to the "Typeset" menu
in TeXShop and select "TeX and Ghostscript" instead of "pdftex".
A better fix is to set up automatic conversion from EPS to PDF in the
