I subscribe to istockphoto and there's times I'll find a delicious image only to pause when I realize it's an EPS file.

Nine times out of ten I'll need a clear background (png) so importing it into a Photoshop application doesn't really help.

But am I missing something? It seems like given the fact that EPS is such a common format, is there a way to manipulate this in Photoshop or has the world changed to the point where it's assumed that everyone has Illustrator?

Stupid question, perhaps, but there it is.

Is a vector image designed in a way where it can be edited and manipulated in Photoshop?
