Matlab's standard plotting tools are sufficient for visualizing intermediate results, but there are many reasons why you can't simply export a eps or pdf to be included in a LaTeX generated report or publication. I've tried a several options varying from explicitly setting the fonts to using export tools such as matlab2tikz; but what tools/ methods do you find the most effective at easily making a beautiful figure without extensive effort?

That sounds like a great idea, can I borrow one of yours?

I found this useful:
width = 3; % Width in inches
height = 3; % Height in inches
set(gcf,'PaperUnits', 'inches');
papersize = get(gcf, 'PaperSize');
left = (papersize(1)- width)/2;
bottom = (papersize(2)- height)/2;
myfiguresize = [left, bottom, width, height];
set(gcf,'PaperPosition', myfiguresize);
% Save the file as PNG

I create the graph or image in a MATLAB figure on screen exactly as I want it to appear in the paper. Then I save the figure as either a PDF or a PNG using export_fig. Finally I insert the output in latex using includegraphic and compile using pdflatex.
Export_fig respects figure dimensions, crops whitespace, embeds fonts and saves bitmaps at high quality, so the results look good.

Oliver's export_fig, mentioned in the FAQ, is certainly a very popular, if not the most popular, way to do it. http://matlab.wikia.com/wiki/FAQ#How_do_I_save_my_figure.2C_axes.2C_or_image.3F_I.27m_having_trouble_with_the_built_in_MATLAB_functions.

While beauty is subjective, I don't think that it is possible to produce a beautiful figure without extensive effort. Even with extensive effort, I do not think that MATLAB can produce a beautiful figure. Now quick, publishable and clear, then you want to use export_fig.

Matlab-generated PDF graph
If you have saved your Matlab-created graph as a pdf file, then you can use it in your Latex document using:
You may change the size of your figure by tuning the options inside the braces to fit it to your space. Then compile your whole document:
pdflatex -interaction=nonstopmode -src main.tex
Matlab-generated EPS graph
If you have saved your Matlab-created graph as an eps file, then the same procedure applies for including the figure. For compilation use:
latex -interaction=nonstopmode -src main.pdf
dvips main.dvi
ps2pdf main.ps
If you are creating a presentation using beamer class, see beamer's documentation, chapter Creating PostScripts.
