I guess I had never noticed a degradation when using the eps images.

The degradation, particularly on jpeg files, is obvious. This conversion 
is done with ImageMagick.

I'm presuming the rescaling of eps files is simply performed by one of the 
latex graphics packages. My guess is the real work is done when converting 
from dvi to pdf. Does pdf keep the original eps embedded? The final say on 
the conversion could be with the printer.

What kind of quality issues do you find?

Just curious,
