I put together a small package epspdfconversion.sty that makes it  
easier to use the epspdf-tools  (http://tex.aanhet.net/epspdf/) from  
within pdflatex. It is based on epstopdf.sty and provides a similar  
functionality. It is possible to tell epspdf that you want your pdf  
figures in grayscale, for prepress-usage etc.

You can find the package here:

I would be happy if you could have a look and provide a bit of  
feedback. I hope (and think so) it is helpful for others.

Typical use: Say you produce a lot of eps-graphics in Maple or stata.  
You want to include them in you pdflatex document. And you want them  
prepress-ready, in grayscale, with a bounding-box that makes sense  
and you want them updated because they change often (because you  
change something in you statistics package or so). Put this


in your preamble and this in your text:


That's it. The epspdf-tools will do the conversion for you on the  
fly. See the documentation for more options a ways to use the package.

Let me also say THANK YOU to the list in general and a few people  
especially who helped a lot with their postings to prepare a prepress- 
ready book half a year ago.
