Thanks for pointing my attention to display. I wasn't aware  
ImageMagick had a GUI.

Two problems though:

- I was under the impression ImageMagick worked by converting  
everything to bitmaps. What is looked for here is working directly on  
the EPS code, so that the output of the crop operation is a vectorial  
EPS file. Do you mean ImageMagick does this?

- Working from display, every time I try to open an eps file I get  
"PostScript delegate failed".

Thanks in any case,
