Of course we all know that we can use gretl for producing pretty graphs.
Then, you can save them in some format (eg pdf) and include them in your 
documents: slides, article, PhD thesis, whatever. We all do that.

However, if you need to customise them, the choice of the TikZ format may 
be especially convenient for LaTeX users, since a TikZ file is essentially 
a (relatively little) text file in which you can insert graphical 
elements, text, TeX maths and so on.

Since turning a gretl graph into a TikZ file is quite easy (thanks to 
gnuplot), I wrote a little "how-to" on the gretl wiki.


I hope this is useful.
