The PostScript file may contain information to identify individual
pictures. In the case of dvips, this information even includes
filenames, solving the naming problem.

In a PostScript to pdf conversion, such information would almost
certainly get lost, and you would have to lift the pictures manually
out of the containing page. If you do it with a program such as
Illustrator then you might run into Illustrator's mishandling of TeX
fonts, if they are used in your pictures.

Such a procedure would be a headache, but still doable. At one time,
I have used printing-to-pdf and Illustrator to lift pictures out of
a Maple file. This took me 2 or 3 days.

Conversion between eps and pdf can be done with Unix command-line
