    What image editor software are you using? (Generally, depending on the app) You'll need to set the background colour as the trasparent colour. Then save as a PNG or GIF image. PNG will allow for alpha transparencies (different levels of transparent which will give cleaner edges) where as GIF is an absolute (1 level of transparency). This is just a basic description but should be enough to get you going.
