In the pre-unix Mac days, what actually happened when you
cut-and-pasted graphics was dependent on the applications. With
some pairs of programs you could not get high resolution pictures
transferred this way, with some you could. I guess the situation
is basically the same now.

Can you use the original programs to "print" the pictures to postscript?
If so, you're done. If the pictures are PICTs that are being included
by TeXtures, you can do this with any program that can read PICT. Why 
can't you open the pictures with Preview and save as PDF?
