Thanks for many helpful suggestions. I actually didn't know about the
"Simplify" command. :P

But this command doesn't help in my case: I was trying to capture a
band diagram with many almost flat bands. To get enough points on the
flat region (so they look better on a paper), I set Mathematica to
very high resolution to capure the flat region -- thus the many data
points ... in addition, the publisher requires eps format. I have
tried almost every means (i.e., illustrator saved eps -> pdf ->
WARMFigToPDF -> pdftops -eps) and generated each figure at around 3 MB
size, but TeXShop/Preview still don't like them ...
