hiya Matt,

Flash supports png
Export image with alpha channel as png

Personally, depending on the image and situation, usually I would import as
indexed BMP, break apart and outline with smooth line tool and delete

Alpha channel tends to increase file size.

The best technique is keeping the file size small(web)
