[OS X TeX] converting EPS images when typesetting

Years and years ago, Herb told me to open the eps file in TeXShop. I thought he was kidding, but then I tried it. That made a copy of the .eps file as a .pdf. I then put them into the file as ``include graphics{filename}” with no extension.

Worked like a charm. No reprocessing.

When I typeset the document on my setup using latexmk, the images are converted to PDF files (-eps-converted-to is appended to the name) the first time and then the converted images are read on subsequent typeset runs. When he typesets the same document, the EPS images are converted every single time he typesets, which takes several minutes rather than a few seconds. What can he do in TeXShop so that the images are only converted once?
