Hello Greg,
To convert images in Ubuntu you can use GIMP, or imagemagick

http://www.imagemagick.org/script/index.php
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ImageMagick
http://www.gimp.org/
http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-images-out.html#gimp-using-fileformats-export-dialog

Please be aware that PSD files are known to be problematic. See

"PSD

    PSD is Adobe Photoshop's native file format, and it is therefore comparable to XCF in complexity. GIMP's ability to handle PSD files is sophisticated but limited: some features of PSD files are not loaded, and only older versions of PSD are supported. Unfortunately, Adobe has now made the Photoshop Software Development Kit — which includes their file format specifications — proprietary, and only available to a limited set of developers approved by Adobe. This does not include the GIMP development team, and the lack of information makes it very difficult to maintain up-to-date support for PSD files.
