According to Andre' Kuzniarek in his article, "The Graphics Designer:
Graphics Editing Outside of Mathematica", in vol 5 iss 4 of The
Mathematica Journal, if you convert to clipboard to Illustrator format
before saving in a file, Photoshop can open the file.  I expect you'd
be very interested in the rest of his article as well.
