Is it possible to have a particle system emit particles based on the alpha channel of a texture? I would need to emit particles only from the parts of an image texture that are not transparent.

you can add texture to the particle system :

then change the influence from time to density in the texture tab :

in the texture tab you can change the mapping, enable/disable Alpha ; by default it will use the alpha channel and emit from the non transparent part
