Iosif,
the problem is that to produce a pdf file from latex there are at least two
ways:
the one you described and the other is to run pdflatex (in the office they
know only the last one). But having a pstricks code in latex  file you
cannot run pdflatex on it.
Thus, you can remove pictures from your paper and send them separately as ps
files
or you can make ps files with figures and insert them to your file using
graphics package.
