What an effort which also yields bad results regarding quality! EPS is
vector oriented and I doubt that PNG to EPS gives nice results besides
if you prefer it as such why not directly create a png using the png

What do you mean with faulty? I suspect it was to large because you
forgot the paper="special" option. Otherwise it creates an A4 plot.
