I suggest you three ways:
* using matrices :
        creates first a diagonal matrix with eval coefficients on main
        diagonal, then multiply the matrices diagonal and egimgs
* using a temporary matrix with repeated eval coefficients
        repeats array eval as many times as required to have two arrays
        of the same size that can be multiplied.

and maybe the more efficient that does not require you to create a temp
array of size egimgs.shape :
	or for inplace update of egimgs
	egimgs *= eval.T
        provided the len of 1darray and one of the dimension of the
        2darray match, you can multiply them directly.
