You shouldn't see bitmaps.  The faking that pslatex does simply
substitutes times alphanumeric characters in mathmode, and fills in
the greeks with symbol where it can.  The rest will use CMR, but now
that you're using pdflatex or dvips -Ppdf and a reasonable
distiller-type program, you'll get Type 1 CMR.  (Unless you're using
the T1 font encoding... don't do that.  8^()

And if you additionally \usepackage{textcomp}, even more of the
characters (like bullets) will be filled in from Times.
