As this seems to be a really common problem: I tried several graphics
converters but most of them didn't accept PostScript as input. Some others
did but performed either only a limited conversion or had many bus. A very
good job does in fact CorelDraw on the PC. It is able to import PostScript as a
vector graphic, not only as a bit map. Of course, CorelDraw is not quite
cheap, but it's good.

And as usual - I am in no way related to any company producing or selling
