1. In the image window menu select Layer>Mask>Add Layer Mask.
2. A options window should open. Keep the "White (full opacity)" option and click "OK"
3. Fill the entire skin with a grey, the darker the grey the more transperent it will be.
4. Then click Layer>Mask>Apply Layer Mask
5. Save the image... done.
add this to my list of things to double-check in the next couple days. While I am notoriously bad with graphics, I think I vaguely remember how to do alpha channels.

I actually would approach transparencies this way from now on, in code. That way, it can be tweaked ad infinitum by anyone.
