Both QuarkXPress 6.5 and 7 let you control the visibility of layers in your imported Photoshop graphics. In QuarkXPress, select an imported Photoshop picture and then open the PSD Import window (Window> PSD Import).
There, you can turn layers on and off, adjust their opacity and blend mode, and access channels and paths.
