I'd try to use "internal" graphics, i.e., PSTricks or Tikz. They don't
fill up your disk with a dozen of different file types and resolutions
and size adaptations to space in your document. The caption or legend
of the picture does not scale to giant block graphics or something
illegibly small. But if you want to create a rather realistic 3-D
landscape, on a not yet discovered stony or watery planet, then other
means are recommended.
