Hi Shlomo,

Are you saying that FrameMaker will have problems producing print and PDF
with a .psd that contains transparency?

FrameMaker does not support transparency in bitmaps when producing
print/PDFs. The best workaround is probably to have a single consolidated
image for the entire cover, and include that in FrameMaker.

[ Somewhat related: I recently implemented support for color masking in
images which are placed in layers through hypertext markers with
FrameMaker-to-Acrobat TimeSavers + Presentation Assistant -- see sample PDF
at http://www.microtype.com/showcase/PresentAsst/TransparentBgnd.pdf . 
Support for image insertion through hypertext marker was added as a
workaround for another problem... FrameMaker places a solid white rectangle
underneath images in the PS/PDF it produces, which obscured items in PDF
layers. ]
