Why Latex Doesn't Save Space

Sep 03 2009

When I try to include an image in my work report, I get the following latex error:

LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of graphic (no BoundingBox)

Then the solution is to convert it to a PostScript file. I use ImageMagick to convert the image using the command

/> convert image.jpg image.eps

and it generates the image file for latex. The eps file is about 50x larger than the original. The question then is whether writing documents in latex actually saves space by reducing formatting.
