Intaglio can "convert PDF, EPS, SVG, and PICT Files Into Editable  
Quartz Graphics. Intaglio will convert most files created by other  
applications into graphics you can edit." but I have never tried to  
do it.

It has LinkBack but I haven't been able to make it work with LaTeXit.  
But that may be due to my own incompetence.

Other than that, I have been using Intaglio for years and I like it a  
whole lot. One thing I like particularly is that I can SAVE AS  
in .intaglio or in .svg for later editing and SAVE A COPY AS in  
cropped .pdf for \includegraphics while Intaglio remembers which  
folder is which. (It sounds frivolous but makes file management a lot
