I need some very elementary advice on including a jpg file in a beamer document.

I am preparing a set of slides using beamer for a talk next week.  My initial version was compiled (via the standard stuff in TeXShop) in pdflatex (I think--whatever is the default engine) but then the pstricks figures all crashed the program.  So I did what I had forgotten to do, when I am creating a paper to print, say via document style article, namely use the "program" macro to insert the line
% !TEX TS-program = latex
which takes care of my pstricks problem.  But now I have trouble with an early command
\begin{figure}
\includegraphics[height=3cm]{alseda1.JPG}
\includegraphics[height=3cm]{Nitecki_Groisman2Montserrat-18.jpg}
\end{figure}
which gave me no trouble in pdflatex.  I realize that the problem is not specifying bounding boxes--whatever that means--but am fairly ignorant about graphicx, so am not sure how to put in a specification.  Can anyone give me some quick-and-dirty advice on how to do this with minimal pain?
