converting eps image to jpg

Hello. I have created a script to make bar charts from several files. I am using gnuplot, the image format output of the gnuplot scripts is eps, which has a good quality. The problem that I have is that when I use imagemagic's convert tool to convert the format to jpg, it loses a lot of quality. Is there any other tool that can convert to the desired output that you can recommend me?

Personally, I've had nothing but success with ImageMagick; I can't imagine what the problem might be.

Nevertheless, GNUPlot itself supports direct output to gif, jpg and png formats: all you have to do is build and link it with gd:
