ohhhh ok i got it
actually it's very easy the commande is :
ps2pdf -dEPSCrop

sorry but i'm new to python  my last question is how to integrate this
to python... i want that the output file must be a pdf ?

1) i created a button which i'll save my id card as "ps" file

def save():
    Canevas.postscript(file=tkFileDialog.asksaveasfilename(), colormode='color')

2) so now i want to create a button to convert this "ps" file into "pdf" ....

def convert():
   help :/
