The issue is with the changed default security settings of dvips in
TL2005. You have to add -R1 to dvips to get the old behaviour or move your
images to a subdirectory of your typeset document.

Adding -R1 to TeX+dvips in TeXShop is a matter of adding a flag to
simpdftex. E.g. from the top of my head

    simpdftex latex --extradvipsopts -R1
