Depends how you're getting your images in, if you're loading GIFs of PNG you could just use the transparency settings of those formats.

The sample methods listed here have always worked well for me:

Also have a look around here for the balls.jar demo.  It's the best all around demo I've yet come across for showing how to work with all the different accelerated image formats, animation, transparency, resource loading, etc. in Java2D
