Thanks Lev and Paul. I'll try this and the other suggestions. Lev is right that ideally I'd like to stick to lossless methods if possible, for the reason he cites.

Martin - I missed your other question. The reason I go through eps and Distiller is that saving directly as PDF in Illustrator gives me a bad bounding box. When I do this, the bounding box includes a whole page, not just my graphic. I would be glad to know how to circumvent this behavior, and hence remove Distiller from the workflow.

Thanks, Martin. "This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.3-1.40.12 (TeX Live 2011) restricted \write18 enabled." I, too, suspect that this is an Apple issue, and will ask my readers to try Adobe Reader. Sadly, this won't help the iPad users.

Here is another example: physics.upenn.edu/~pcn/BadFigs/g224hertzLABEL.eps physics.upenn.edu/~pcn/BadFigs/g224hertzLABEL.pdf In this case, there is only one placed bitmap, which came out blank when printed. Again, the labels added in Illustrator were OK.
