Is there an easy way to get jpeg photos into a groff document that
I have overlooked?  It appears to me that this is a problem I'm going
to be encountering in the future as well as now, and it would be
nice to have a practical, efficient, and inexpensive solution.

If you have access to a Mac, Graphic Converter (included in the system) is
a good solution to convert jpeg to eps as an ascii-hex image file.
You can also down-sample photographs to a resolution
more appropriate for a smaller pic in your groff and you can control
the compression/quality as well (further reduction in file sizes).

If I remember well, I did jpeg to ascii85 conversions a few years ago with AFPL GhostScript 8.0 that (or a newer version) could be available on a PC
platform too.
