I posted a similar message a few days ago, but have not had much response.
What I wanted was a Mac program that would convert PostScript to PICT.

If you have access to a Unix machine, you can download the freeware
package called "ImageMagick".  It contains a program that converts many
formats in both directions, including PostScript to TIFF.  It claims to
support PostScript to PICT, but I cannot get a readable PICT.  Supposedly
the newest version fixes this problem.
