Default Importing PSD file with drop shadows

I'm using Corel Draw 9 and would like to import from Photoshop, a round image (it's a plate) which consists of 5 layers. I'd like to keeping the drop shadows I created for each layer intact, but if I merge or flatten the layers in PS and then import the file into my Corel drawing, the drop shadows are gone.

If I export the image from PS as a JPG the shadows get saved, but the plate gets imported with a square white frame around it, which I don't want.

Thanks in advance, for any advice.

save in photoshop transparency of object + drop shadow (first separate shadow then unite transps of object + shadow's) into alpha channel, then save as .TIFF. So corel will import flattened version of picture with antialiased transparency, there'll be no white frame.
