Thanks for the suggestions but that did not fix the problem. I have
determined that the error that is causing the problem is:

Latex Error: ./texfile.tex:22 LaTeX Error: Cannot determine size of
graphic in image.pdf (no BoundingBox).

But there should be no problem with bounding boxes because it is a pdf
file. And again this file compiles perfectly in TeXShop. This makes me
think TextMate is still somehow using a different method for compiling
the file.

After examining the log files produced by each method I find that they
are handling the graphics in different ways and that is likely what is
leading to the bounding box errors.

TeXShop calls:
Package graphics Info: Driver file: pdftex.def on input line 91.

File: pdftex.def 2009/08/25 v0.04m Graphics/color for pdfTeX
\Gread at gobject=\count87

While the method used by Textmate calls:

Package graphics Info: Driver file: dvips.def on input line 91.

File: dvips.def 1999/02/16 v3.0i Driver-dependant file (DPC,SPQR)

So how do I get textmate to use the same graphics process as TeXXhop.
I assume this is some sort of option I need to set in the preferences.
Anyone know what it would be and how to set it?
