I tried this psfrag substitute when using pdflatex. The file myextractor.sty and the configurations of main.tex work very well, but now I have a problem, I want to disable the extraction of .eps files as .pdf. First I deleted the lines:

\usepackage{myextractor}% automatically load graphicx


but when I compile main.tex as Latex -> PDF in TexnicCenter it is still generating the .pdf files of the .eps images. I deleted the myextractor.sty file from path, but it is still generating these files, I uninstalled MikTex and TexnicCenter and also I deleted the temporal archives, but when I reinstall and compile main.tex it continues generating the .pdf of each image. And now every file that I compile as Latex -> PDF generates the .pdf version of the images (I work only with .eps) even if they do not have the lines above or the myextractor.sty file in path, included figures out of project/Images.

These only happens when I compile as Latex -> PDF, if I compile in any other way it works fine and does not generate the .pdf version of the eps.

How can I disable these "configuration"?. Some times I have a lot of images and this generates too many archives in DropBox.

Note: Before I tried this method I worked with .eps images and Latex -> PDF without problem.

This is a simple example:

  • Welcome to TeX.Stackexchange! Can you show the first few lines of your .log file? – user36296 Jan 29 at 17:56
  • it should not re-convert after the first time, but you can always just use \includegraphics directly on the pdf (pdflatex can not include eps, so you need to convert the eps to pdf but you only need to do it once) – David Carlisle Jan 29 at 18:24
  • You are compiling with pdflatex, this means that you need the pdf versions of your images (and pdflatex will therefore automatically convert the eps to pdf). If you want to use the eps image, compile with latex instead of pdflatex – user36296 Jan 30 at 17:22
  • Yes I agree, but I guess before, the .pdf version of the images were saved as temporal files and now It saves them in the same folder where it is my project. Sure sometimes it is very useful, but other times my folders are filled with those files. If this is the case I want to return back to the original configuration. – Rey Jan 30 at 17:39

You can suppress the loading of epstopdf by defining \DoNotLoadEpstopdf:


This naturally means that pdflatex can't handle the image, and will fall back to draft mode:
