Hello Dr. Katscher,

the whole Adobe program for this purpose? Or are there other
possibilities?

Pierre already mentioned the crucial first step -- to scan or photograph
the illustrations, so that you have them in an electronic form.  This
will usually result in a PDF, JPEG, or some other such file.

Then (perhaps after file format conversions) it is possible to include
them in LaTeX, using the standard \includegraphics command (most likely
inside \begin{figure} ... \end{figure}, as you probably did with your
geometrical figures.
