More informations:

with run : the called file must be in the same folder as the main file.

You need two files xxx.pdf and yyy.png (or zzz.jpg). I make a try with a script.sh and
the link is correct. The problem with Skim and Preview comes from the pdf file

Texshop works also width .png and not with .pdf. My dpf viewer by default is Skim
