So, you didn't make this .ps via La/TeX on your own system? It sounds as
though the figures aren't included in the .ps file but must be directly
included via whatever software the author uses when creating the .pdf. Just
a hunch though.

Drop the .ps onto TeXShop and it will do the conversion for you. If you
double click the file Preview is the default application to open and convert
it. You'll also note that TeXShop substitutes a different font for the text;
so the fonts aren't included in the .ps either!

Start to magnify the page and you'll see how awful the .pdf really is!

Good Luck,
