My first impression was that pdftricks placed each figure into a  
separate file (although there was a common file containing  
\usepackage's for the requested packages) while ps4pdf placed the  
figures on separate pages in a single file and extracted the images  
page by page into the original document. I can see situations where  
one method might be more convenient than another when having to send  
the documents to someone else for review but not otherwise.

Are there other differences that are worth mentioning?

Good Luck,
