This is normal when you use this approach.  We use the graphicx package
to import images into LaTeX which is designed to deal with latex vs
pdflatex issues.  Given a postscript file we convert it to a png using
the convert utility from the ImageMafick package (on Linux).  If you
then have a line like: \includegraphics[width=7.5cm]{pic} in your source
file it will use the ps file when processing with latex and the png file
when processing with pdflatex.  The results usually look identical.

Chhers, Mike.
