Convert PDF to EPS

I wanted to submit a paper but they required the LaTeX source too, including the images. They accepted EPS images but not PDF! WTF? All my images are in PDF format. How to convert them to EPS?

This tip is from here.

Here I had another difficulty: EPS images are not supported by pdflatex. Great! So I had to switch back to the old latex command…

Compilation with pdflatex:



pdflatex $MAIN.tex
bibtex $MAIN
pdflatex $MAIN.tex
pdflatex $MAIN.tex

\rm *.aux *.blg *.dvi *.log *.bbl *.flg *.idx *.ind *.lof *.lot *.toc *.glo *.gls *.ilg 2>/dev/null

Compilation with latex:




bibtex $MAIN
dvips $MAIN.dvi -o $MAIN.ps
ps2pdf $MAIN.ps

\rm $MAIN.ps *.aux *.blg *.dvi *.log *.bbl *.flg *.idx *.ind *.lof *.lot *.toc *.glo *.gls *.ilg 2>/dev/null
