Thanks a lot. I used ImageMagick and type identify -verbose myfigu.eps 
and got the following:

Image: myfigu-0.eps
   Format: PS (PostScript)
   Class: DirectClass
   Geometry: 418x217+0+0
   Resolution: 72x72
   Print size: 5.80556x3.01389
   Units: Undefined
   Type: Bilevel
   Base type: Bilevel
   Endianess: Undefined
   Colorspace: RGB
   Depth: 16/8-bit
   Channel depth:
   gray: 1-bit
   alpha: 8-bit

It states Resolution on the 5th line as 72 x 72. So, this is wrong 
information then?

Thanks a lot.
