[OS X TeX] converting jpg to eps

I had not heard of the eps2:foo.eps option with convert.  Were is it 

When I did a "man convert" I was referred to web sites, but none mention 
eps2.  My version seems to be 6.2.5 (or whatever i-installer did last 
month).  I would appreciate more knowledge about what eps2 does.

I had not used convert because I thought it always went through the 
internal format and generally made larger files than jpeg2ps.  I have 
occasionally had problems with jpeg2ps, and it is because the .jpg file 
was compressed in some way.  As it processes the file, it tells me that 
the file may not work in some PS interpreters, which is indeed the case. 
I generally read it into photoshop and do a save-as to baseline 

Also, I find that when I use grab and save it as a .tiff file (default), 
and I use tif2eps, I get a statement that it first ignores some things and 
second is saving as 72 dpi.  I use the photoshop method to get around that 
one too.
