    You can convert it to .tga first (this can be done with almost any program, paint.net, photoshop, GIMP, ...).
    Afterwards, you can convert the .tga-image to .blp with the wc III Image Extractor tool.

    Okay, so you need to convert it from .psd to .tga with photoshop first...
    Afterwards, open the Image Extractor tool, press Open -> Image, select your .tga-file (the one you converted earlier).
    Now press Save -> Image, select "BLizzard image maP", rename it if you like (not necessary) and press "save".
    It should work... I just checked it (again) and it works for me.
