Nitecki,

use — as already mentioned — pdflatex together with the packages auto-pst-pdf and etex; also you have to allow shell-escape;
still there can be some problems if you are using a lot of different pstricks-packages (e.g. pst-3dplot) AND tikz; then try the code below;

I would not convert pdf or jpg to eps by hand, because the files get bigger AND you need more time;

\usepackage{etex}%vor auto-pst-pdf
\usepackage[on]{auto-pst-pdf}%[final][off][on]
%herbert voss specialcode, after auto-pst-pdf, before pstricks;
\makeatletter
\let\Test at pr@shipout\pr at shipout%% save the original definition
\let\Test at shipout\shipout
\makeatother
\usepackage{tikz}
\makeatletter
\AtBeginDocument{%
\let\pr at shipout\Test at pr@shipout%% restore it
\let\shipout\Test at shipout
}
\makeatother
\ifpdf\else
\usepackage{pstricks}
\usepackage{
pst-circ,
pst-eucl,
pst-func,
pst-node,
pst-plot,
pst-3dplot,
psvectorian,
}
%
\fi
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{%
arrows.meta,
mindmap,
calendar,
intersections,
arrows,
backgrounds,
decorations.pathreplacing,
}

hope this helps;

My initial version was compiled (via the standard stuff in TeXShop) in pdflatex (I think--whatever is the default engine) but then the pstricks figures all crashed the program.  So I did what I had forgotten to do, when I am creating a paper to print, say via document style article, namely use the "program" macro to insert the line
