PhD student in Jönköping University, department of Mechanical Engineering. My research area is something in between of reliability, structural optimization and response surface modelling. People in my research group use LaTeX daily for all their scientific writings and reports. I wouldn't say we're anywhere near LaTeX gurus, but we're trying to improve our skills continuously.

My main interests are Python programming, algorithms, numerical optimization, and cooking.

I became acquainted with LaTeX a few years ago writing my Master thesis, and never looked back .

Incidentally, there are two separate pdfcrop projects in existence, and both are Perl scripts: here and on CTAN

comment includegraphics choosing pdf instead of eps
@johnmcd Welcome to TeX-SE! Usually it's best not to cross-post like this -- if your question is better served on another place, a moderator could help you migrate it, along with all comments and answers it had accumulated. You do need a tiny bit of reputation in order to flag for moderation attention (15, IIRC), and then you can just use the "flag" link under your question.

@Raphink LaTeX gets confused when there is more than one dot in the file name. Rename your {by-nc-nd.eu.eps} to something else and you should be good to go.
