Transparent Import into Flash MX

I'm importing an image into flash, from photoshop and the image is on a transparent background. I get it onto the flash stage but it's is on a white background. How do I keep the transparent background?

There are two ways to do this:

shift + ctrl + alt + S


Use the PhotoShop "Export for web..." feature, which will let you export the image as a 32 bit png file. To optimize the file, import it into fireworks and reduce the color channels to the minimum necessary colors, and re-export.

You should get a fairly small png file with alpha transparency.
