```Ok,

> As a side note, more recent versions of the epstopdf package (as of ?)
allow you to re-program the conversion so you can use epspdf or any other
``on the fly'' converter.

>"... yes, that is what I am using in epspdfconversion.sty. For example,

\usepackage[bbox,GRAY]{epspdfconversion}

and then redefines the command for the actual conversion of the eps-file as

epspdf --bbox --GRAY <file>

(this means that epspdf produces a truly grayscaled pdf with a tight
bounding box. There are a lot more possibilities, like prepress,...)"

I'll take a look to this package for the gray scaled figures!!!

Greetings!!!.
