In GIMP:

* Open the existing image
* create a new layer
* move the new (transparent/empty) layer below the main layer (probably
labeled "Background")
* select the part of the main layer (with the image) you want to be
transparent
* delete the selected portion of the main layer (when you do this you
should see a checkerboard pattern and not the background color in that
selected area)
* from the Layers menu either flatten the image or merge down the main
layer into the (fully transparent) bottom layer
* save the image as a PNG
