Why not use the --png flag of lilypond?
lilypond --preview --png

However, if you are not happy with the resolution of the PNG file,
then you can follow Stan's recommendation and use
ps2png -h
to learn how to change the resolution.

In addition to the other suggestions, if you are on Linux/Unix, after using the --preview command you can convert the eps file to an image with:

ps2png <filename.eps>

\layout{ raggedright = ##t }
in your file if you dont want your notes spread out over the
full line width.

Yes, but I was hoping for a "shorter" picture of the measure for something as short as { c' d' e' f' } which results in a 627x41 pixel image, when it could be something like 250x41.

I am wondering if someone can help me figuring out how i can get a small png or eps picture out of a small phrase of say 4 notes? I dont want a whole page or anything, just the bar with the notes. Is it possible?

Thanks in advance

Use --preview from the command line.
