Use the convert program -flatten option to convert all layers into one flat file.

PSD images have some operators that ImageMagick does yet support and that could be the cause of the problem. The best path forward would be to post URL's to one or two problematic images so we can try it here and trace the source of the problem.

I got pretty good results converting your PSD with the -flatten option with ImageMagick 6.0.1-2. However it's not perfect. We will shoot for a patch to the PSD image reader for the next minor release. Thanks for the problem report.

Right, ImageMagick does not yet understand all the variations of the Photoshop image format yet and it may be while before it does.
