I tried to fix that problem weeks ago.
The journal wants Tiff files in high resolution or EPS files - no PS files. The best solution was to use the postscript files from the R graphic device (right mouse save as postscript)
After this I converted the files with Ghostscript and GSViev in a suitable file format.
and after the submission was ready I tried to submit the postscript file ... It worked better than all the other.

Maybe you should also try to use the PS-files.In our case we were ale to look to a PDF file after sending the file whether the submission is ok or not.
And if it was ok the submission was sent to the journal.

Therefore I tried all graphic formats before the regular submission.
