Yes, it can be done using imagemagick, maybe with some help
However, I usually find it better to use pdflatex to make a
pdf whose sole content is the image and then use ghostscript
to convert it to eps for use with classical dvi-generating
latex -- if that's what I want. In this the conversion from
the pixel dimensions of the jpeg to page lengths requires
case-by-case judgment. This can be scripted.
But these days I'm mostly using xelatex for its abilities
with (a) unicode and (b) fully scalable fonts.
