You certainly can, but all that does is create a character-based 
encoding of the image and enclose it in an EPS wrapper. The result is 
many times the size of the original JPG.

Unless you NEED to create Postscript (some printers RIPs do still only 
accept PS files) then you should switch to pdflatex or xelatex.
