Try C-c C-t C-p to switch off TeX-PDF-mode (if your file actually
permits being compiled by normal TeX), then try previewing again.

Yes, you are right. I'm sorry that I missed the obvious. I often end up usuing PDF mode for various reasons.

Looking at the compilation output, I see that the creation of the preview png snippets seems to be done by ghostscript. It looks like a pdf file is first created by TeX and then pdf2dsc is used to create a dsc file from that pdf. I'm not clear what gs uses to create the final png.

In any case, in terms of speed, is this the best possible option?
