        ^^^^^^^^^^^^
You can avoid this guess-work.

Open the .eps file from within  Textures and have a look at its
`pictures' window;  ie.   teste1.eps pictures

The PICT preview will show you the exact size: <width> x <height>
in either points millimeters or picas --- take your pick.


Furthermore, your Textures application should have come 
with a file called  picmacs.tex  (or picmacs.sty) 
which defines macros that can be used like:

\scaledillustration <width> by <height> (teste1.eps scaled <scale>)

where the <width> and <height> are as above,
and the <scale> is as here...    ( 1000 = normal size )

The version of picmacs.tex that came with Textures 1.7.7 
defines \centerillustration and some others.
It is easy to copy the style of these macros,
modifying to create your own to position .eps illustrations
accurately, according to your needs.
This accuracy is important for high-quality typesetting,
and for making text `flow around' your pictures.

Hope this helps,
