"convert" chops off part of postscript file?

I have images in PS that I want to convert to JPG (unfortunately, I need to use them in Powerpoint! Smilie). The problem is that the edges of the image get chopped off when I use:

convert filename.ps filename.jpg

So, for example, in my plots, the top and bottom labels for the x-axis are missing, which is problematic.

Any ideas what to do about this?

I should say:

I just tried this using ghostscript and it works great, except for one thing: it takes my landscape plot and puts it on a portrait page, so there's a ton of whitespace! I can remove it manually but I have a lot of images so if there's a command to change the orientation, I'd appreciate it Smilie

fvwm-convert-2.4(1)						   Fvwm Modules 					       fvwm-convert-2.4(1)

fvwm-convert-2.4 - convert fvwm 2.2.x configuration file to fvwm 2.4 syntax SYNOPSIS
fvwm-convert-2.4 [source] [dest] DESCRIPTION
fvwm-convert-2.4 converts an fvwm 2.2.x configuration file into an fvwm 2.4 compatible syntax. It is not suitable to convert older 1.x configuration files. Please use fvwm-convert-2.2 to convert these to the 2.2.x format first. By default, fvwm-convert-2.4 converts ~/.fvwm2rc, saving the results in ~/.fvwm/.fvwm2rc. You must create the ~/.fvwm directory before running this command. Starting with the 2.4 release, the directory ~/.fvwm is the default location for fvwm user configuration files. Different source and destination files may be given. If the destination file already exists, this program exits. While the program runs it will generate a temporary file with the same name as the destination file with the suffix ".pass1" added. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes the following changes: PixmapPath/IconPath In fvwm 2.4, the PixmapPath and IconPath commands are replaced by the ImagePath command. In addition, the ImagePath can be compiled into fvwm. fvwm-convert-2.4 changes the PixmapPath and IconPath commands to ImagePath commands and removes any directories that are compiled into fvwm. Paths starting with a dollar sign are also removed. ModulePath In fvwm 2.4, the ModulePath is compiled into fvwm. fvwm-convert-2.4 removes any ModulePath commands it finds. If you are using your own modules, (not the ones that come with fvwm), you will have to fix your configuration file after using fvwm-convert-2.4. HilightColor In fvwm 2.4, the HighlightColor command is replaced by a Style command using the HilightFore and HilightBack arguments. fvwm-con- vert-2.4 makes these changes. HilightColorset In fvwm 2.4, the HighlightColorset command that was present in some of the 2.3.x beta releases is replaced by a Style command using the HilightColorset style. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes these changes. WindowShadeAnimate In fvwm 2.4, the WindowShadeAnimate command is replaced by the WindowShadeSteps Style option. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes this change. WindowFont In fvwm 2.4, the WindowFont command is replaced by a Style command using the Font argument. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes this change. ColorLimit In fvwm 2.4, the ColorLimit command is automatic. If you have a limited colormap, color limiting is the default. fvwm-convert-2.4 removes any ColorLimit command that it finds. GlobalOpts The GlobalOpts command is converted to Style options and the BugOpts command. Some options can not be converted automatically, though. Read Prints a message identifying any read commands found. The files being read may need to be converted also. Placement Styles Any of the old placement Styles found in the file can not be converted automatically. Instead, fvwm-convert-2.4 prints a warning. For details about the conversion, please refer to the "Window manager placement" section of the fvwm man page. FvwmConfig and FvwmPipe These modules are no longer a part of the fvwm distribution. fvwm-convert-2.4 prints a warning if these modules are found in the file. FvwmButtons panels The syntax of panels in FvwmButtons has changed. The conversion can not be done automatically. fvwm-convert-2.4 prints a message when it encounters a potential panel definition. For details about the conversion, please refer to the "CONVERTING OLD PANEL CONFIGURA- TIONS" section of the FvwmButtons man page. BUGS
You need Perl to be installed. WindowFont and HilightColor commands embedded in functions are not found. If you have either of these commands in functions, they are not detected. Known bugs can be found in the fvwm bug tracking system (accessible from the fvwm home page). Bug reports can be sent to the fvwm-workers mailing list (see the FAQ). AUTHOR
