Or you can give the following flag to simpdftex (altpdftex) in your 
TeXShop settings

         --distiller prog
                 Use a distiller different from ps2pdf which is the 
                 Argument must be an executable or executable script that
                 gets called iwth two arguments: input file (PS) and 
                 file (PDF). E.g.:
                 Using this flag sets the distiller filter mode to off

See "simpdftex --help"
