Copy the image map layer to the transparency layer, then play with the layer opacity and the main transparency to achieve the right look.

may also need to invert the image on the transparency layer if the wrong parts are casting shadows.

also, this won't work with shadow maps, only raytraced shadows.

there's probably a better way of doing this, but this was the first method that came to mind.
