But my thought was that if I distill a .ps file that prepared at 600dpi through distiller set at 2400dpi, it won't do much since the original .ps file doesn't have the information that it needs, at least for the graphics files that are part of it, to get true 2400dpi output on the pdf. I looked through the .ps file produced by TeXShop and it says clearly that it was produced at 600dpi.

Try adding the

--dvipsopts "-D 2400"

to the simpdftex command line in TeXShop->Preferences->Engine->TeX + dvips + distiller command for Latex.

Good Luck,
