Dear Forum(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I would like to establish a workflow of how to include .eps graphics generated with gnuplot into Latex documents and it would be great if other could contribute to this.

At the moment its like this. I plot some data with gnuplot and save it to a .eps file. However, the "white-space" margin to the left and right are too large (so placing to figures next to eachother looks bad).

First question: What is the smartest way of generating a bounding box that does not include so much white space? Of course, I can edit the eps file, but still, doing it for 5, 10 or more files is impractical.

Second question: what latex compiler do I need to be able to compile the document with the eps figures? PDFLATEX does not work, it requires PNGs or PDFs. So i need to convert the eps files first to pdfs, which is also impractical to do everytime I need to change a label.

Third question: How can PNGs be combined with vector graphics in the same latex document?

So, I really would like to establish this for me now once and for all. Maybe its also usefull to others.

Thanks for your feedback.
