I’ve usually used the ImageMagick program
convert to get a bitmap out of
PostScript files, but it can be hard to drive and the useful documentation is
hidden among hundreds of commandline options to apply weird visual effects.
pstoimg seems to do well when given a few key
pstoimg -antialias -density 300 -type png -out foo.png foo.ps
Here “300” is the DPI at which to generate the image, and the
important for good results. It looks like a
-geometry argument may be
important for EPS files if they have bounding boxes that aren’t what you want.
Update: One thing to watch out for is that
pstoimg doesn’t handle paths
with spaces in them correctly. Just work around that.
