I use the latex->dvips->ps2pdf chain that is what prosper manual 
recommends. So the conversion from tiff to eps would happen 
automatically as described by the rule

\DeclareGraphicsRule{.tif}{eps}{.tif.bb}{`tiff2ps -e #1}

but it doesn't. Why?

I'll look at these packages, but it seems that they all need to be 
loaded after hyperref and graphicx, that can be a problem because 
prosper load hyperref and graphicx before.

Any other suggestion is wellcome. ;-)

Thanks in advance,
