Can Matlab convert a .eps figure to a .bmp figure?

Subject: Can Matlab convert a .eps figure to a .bmp figure?

Hi all,

I was given some .eps figures that I need to convert to bmp format.
I do not have other graphics programs, so it's Matlab or nothing.

Can Matlab recognize these figures? If so, how do I do that and how
can I then save the figure to a bmp? I see it has the capability to
save them as .eps but I cannot find where to load them? IMREAD does
not support eps from what I have read.

Thanks, Mike

try

http://www.imagemagick.org/script/convert.php

Imagemagick is overkill for what you want to do, but is really an
incredible program. If you use it and the converted resolution is not as
good as you want, look into the documentation on how to override the
default output resolution. Once imagemagick is properly installed, you
can access "convert" directly from the MATLAB command line using

 >>!convert infile.eps outfile.bmp

Make sure your current directory is where the figures reside.

There are several freeware programs that might be able to do this. Try
googling 'irfanview' or 'ghostscript'
