    Grant,

    In Photoshop File > Export > 'Clipping paths to Illustrator'. FH can open
    the AI file.

    This is expected behavior on the PC, and it's only a screen/preview
    problem - the EPS will print fine to a PS printer, however the black
    backgrounds are always distracting, and frequently bersome to work
    with.

    The workaround involves importing the clipping path into FreeHand:

    Make sure that the TIFFs you use for your final layout are flat and
    simple - no clipping paths, paths, layers or alpha channels.

    You can also save your EPS files from Photoshop with a bitmap preview,
    which FreeHand will display properly. Not pretty, but they are
    transparent - usually excessively transparent.
