    For the quick n dirty way of doing it, make sure you have 1 solid colour
    that is not used in the main image on the parts you want transparent, then
    click on the sprite and select background transparent from the ink drop down
    menu in the sprite inspector panel. Also make sure that the sprites
    background colour on the same panel is exactly the same rgb value as the
    colour you want transparent (look up inks in the help file).
    For a much nicer way to do it including soft fades and antialiasing, save
    your image out of photoshop (or whatever you're using) as a 32bit image
    (with an appropriate alpha channel or "mask") and import that image into
    director making sure you have 32bit selected when importing it, then just
    drag it onto the stage.
