pdfcrop does a nice job, with the example from my other
followup post... but the method requires a file per
image for capture.  Which might be worth developing an
application around.

It would make sense if the resulting cropped pdf image
where included in latex docs, like with \includegraphics
...reasonable solution accept the requirement for users
to externalize each formula in a file AND compile them
with Makefile targets is a little daunting, when the
expected solution is a latex template for "typeset" from
within TexShop.

...oh wait, \pagestyle{empty} doesn't seem to work in

\pagestyle{empty} % doesn't seem to remove page numbers in amsart

\ $\binom{n}{x_1\  x_2\ \ldots x_n} \prod_{i=1}^n p_i^{x_i}$\\
\ $sum_{i=1}^n x_i = n s  0 < p_i < 1i ; \sum_{i=1}^n p_i = 1$\\


So, I cannot remove the page number *sigh*
--- I'm back to a preview based solution and
I welcome further ideas...
