I have a pdf file:  pdfinfo says: 

Producer:     pdfTeX-1.0-pdfcrypt
CreationDate: Thu May 30 16:05:00 2002
Tagged:       no
Pages:        8
Encrypted:    no
Page size:    612 x 792 pts (letter)
File size:    62451 bytes
Optimized:    no
PDF version:  1.3

It has various figures in it, one of which I'd like to extract to use in
a powerpoint presentation.  I've tried pdfimages, but doesn't extract
anything.  I've no idea how the original figures were made or what they
were.  Would I be right in thinking that unless they were png or jpgs I
won't be able to extract them?
