Dick has provided a LaTeX template example in Texshop that has two lines

\DeclareGraphicsRule{.tif}{png}{.png}{`convert #1 `basename #1 .tif`.png}

that  help with automatic conversion of figures.
(I'm not sure what the second line does since I dont' use .tif or .png 
Copy these two lines into the preamble of your document.

Eps files do not need to be converted manually.  TeXshop will 
automatically do the conversion during the run.
If there are many figures,  we find that it  helps to put all of them 
into one  folder (Figures, say)  and to use the command
for inserting myfig.eps or myfig.pdf
without extensions .eps or .pdf
so that the file can be run either in latex or pdflatex

All the .pdf files will magically appear when the document is typset with 

Hope this helps to speed up the process and avoid worry about conversions 
of eps files.
