[tex-live] Included .jpg figures to small

I have solved the problem. I realized that I use 'latex' on MixTex and  
'pdftex' on TexShop. For latex I used the bounding box option when  
including a figure. Pdftex determines the bounding box of the figures  
by itself and uses the viewport option when the bounding box option is  
used, resulting in the reported behaviour.
Thanks for the help!
