I have had good luck converting the PostScript files to PDF with GhostScript.
(Ghostscript comes with a script called "ps2pdf" that runs the converter with 
just ther right options.)  Both Photoshop and Illustrator are then able to 
read them, and you can tweak the presentation to your heart's content.
