Nobody seems to know what they're talking about.

The .BMP filetype (not just in Paint.NET, but everywhere in the world) does not support transparency. The .PNG filetype is the best filetype for just about every use, and it does include transparency, but you said you need to save it in a BMP to use it. So, I'm sorry, but unless you can use PNG (which is lossless, like BMP) or GIF, you can't have transparency.

EDIT: And you need to change your thread title. Please read the rules.
