The problem I run into is that beamer presentations need to be compiled using pdfLaTeX, which does not take .eps (at least it used to complain when I tried to do that the last time I tried, probably a couple of years ago). So I tend to call ps2pdf (part of ghostscrip, use google to find that) from within my .do file, like in the example below: *------------------ part of .do file ----------------------- graph export mean_imp.eps, replace capture rm mean_imp.pdf !ps2pdf -sPAPERSIZE -dDEVICEWIDTHPOINTS#432 -dDEVICEHEIGHTPOINTS#288 mean_imp.eps mean_imp.pdf *------------------- end part of .do file -------------------- and than include the graph like this: *-------------------- part of LaTeX/beamer file --------------- \begin{frame} \frametitle{mean median mode imputation} \begin{figure}[tb] \centering \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{mean_imp.pdf} \end{figure} \end{frame} *------------------ end part of LaTeX/beamer file -------------- I have no idea if this is better or worse than using .png, it is just a workaround that has worked for me.
