I try to use magazine overlays that I bought from Expression outlets. They are in PSD file format. I put them in CS5 and change the extension to TIFF but it still doesn't work. The overlay will come up in photokey4, but it just covers the foreground and background. Can you help me? Thank you for your time.
P.S. I am using Windows 7

Overlays in PhotoKey use alpha channels to control transparency, so you will need to make sure that you embed the transparency data properly when saving the files in Photoshop.
