If I take the EPS doc and convert it to a PNG with a transparent background, then bring that into PS, that should work, correct?
I'm curious about when you say the image I'm using has broken pixels. I'm not sure what you mean by that.
Thanks for your help!

I'm wondering if you know there is an excellent tool for making rainbows in Photoshop using this Gradient preset?
Dragging vertically to give you the thickness will produce the straight rainbow, which can be warped with Free Transform. Then click on the Warp icon (top right) and then the warp options (top left) and choose Arc. Drag to get the required arc with the centre handle, and give it some Gaussian blur and adjust opacity.
This will eliminate those nasty aliasing artifacts in your screen shot.
I did not know that, but thank you for that information. I'm definitely going to try!
Much better than what I had.
However, I'm still trying to make the rainbow blend into the clouds more. Have it appear to go behind the clouds at the top right and bottom left.
I've added a mask to the rainbow, and am trying to paintbrush over the rainbow mask, revealing the clouds underneath and making the rainbow appear to go behind them.
I'm curious what setting you'd recommend for the paintbrush, like brush hardness, diameter, mode, opacity and flow, to best help it blend in with the clouds. I've tried the current settings you see on there, and it's kind of working, but the edges are a little hard, even though I have it set to what I think is a fairly soft edge. I'd like to be able to have a more gradual fade at the bottom, and was thinking a lower opacity might be good, but it doesn't seem to be providing gradual enough changes.
Any input anyone can give me here would be great.
