  Slightly off-topic, but I have been slightly surprised in recent years at how much trouble I have with the graphics people at journals -- I have been asked for TIFF files when I submit PDF, PostScript instead of PDF, TIFF instead of PNG ... I can do most of these things by regenerating the figure or using ImageMagick, ps2pdf,pdf2ps, etc., but it really surprises me that the graphics departments of major academic publishers don't seem to be able to translate between standard,
well-behaved vector formats and bitmaps, or between different kinds of standard bitmaps.

  Maybe they (a) want to save time by making sure authors do these conversions or (b) don't have their experts on the front desk ... ?
