Yes. The best way depends on which graphics program you have.  If you can
edit PDF files (eg Photoshop with Acrobat) then use the pdf() driver.

The xfig() driver produces files that you can edit with the Unix Xfig

If neither of these is available, you can produce png() bitmap graphs (at
least on the Darwin version of R) and edit these in most image editing
