Photoshop - Layers losing transparency when merging


I'm working on multiple layers on Photoshop (CS6). Some of the layers have different layer styles like multiply. When I merge the layers together I seem to lose the transparency on some of the image, how can I sort this please?

this is before merging

and this is after

It depends on what you're merging together. If you're going to merge the layers, I'm assuming you don't want to edit the layer later on.

Right-click the transparent layer, select Convert to Smart Object. Then right-click it again and select Rasterize Layer. Now you can merge this layer with others like usual.
