Making image transparent may not be possible in power point.

But making a slide background transparent is possible as indicated by shreedhar.

Try inserting a shape, for example a rectangle the same size as your photo.

Now with the shape selected use the drawing tools - format pane to select the shape fill on the shape styles pane.  Select picture and navigate to your picture ...Insert

Right click the shape, now select format picture | Fill | Picture or texture fill |

Select the transparency slider as required.

If I'm using an image from the internet with a white background, I just want to make the white background transparent.

Is something like that possible in PowerPoint?

For what it's worth, PowerPoint 2010 also has a new Background Removal Tool. It's on the Picture Tools Format tab that shows up when you select the picture.
