Image magick producing large eps files
I recently needed to convert a bunch of png files into eps format (ultimately to put into a LaTeX dvi). I thought the best way was to use a simple mogrify command from image magick, such as
mogrify -format eps *.png
The problem is the files obtained are way too large (easily over a 10Mb for an original 100kb png file). Even after fooling around more with options (-trim, -colors, ...) I could not get it much below 4Mb (without seriously damaging the quality of the picture).
On the other hand, GIMP gives a perfectly satisfactory eps file (quality and size about 600kb).
Any idea how to make mogrify use more sensible parameters?
