Select your object
Open the render tree
Hit "update"
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?
