Convert eps files to jpg in Linux

To convert from eps to jpg using ghostscript:

gs -sDEVICE=jpeg -dJPEGQ=100 -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -dSAFER -r300 -sOutputFile=myfile.jpg myfile.eps

This produces huge files. You can trim and resize them in image magick:

mogrify -trim -resize 800x600 myfile.jpg

    Very helpful. I was able to convert a file that Imagemagick would not so now I know the problem is not Ghostscript.

    When the simple “convert myfile.eps myfile.jpg” doesn’t work properly, your solution gives a perfect conversion!!!! You can’t imagine how happy I am. You just solved a huge problem in my thesis presentation!!!!!! 😀

    When I initially commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
    and from now on whenever a comment is added I receive four emails with
    the same comment. There has to be an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

    Great idea! Thank’s for sharing this. Used snipped to convert lot’s of eps without need for using GIMP.
