Select your object
Open the render tree
Put in your image clip
Select an "image" node and connect your image clip to the "input" of your "image" node.
Select a node "channel picker" (or 'picker", I don't remember).
Plug the output of the image node in the "picker" node.
Plug the output of the picker in the "transparency" of the phong node.
Is that what you're after?
