Create Material with Image? (for Particle System)

I have an image of a simple shape imported into my project that I want to use as the particles in my particle system. Is there a way to turn this image into a material that, once placed in the particle system, will make all the particles look like the image itself? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Once you make a material from that image (be sure that its powers of 2) you should be able to do anything with it what you want.
or do you mean that the particles as a whole takethe shape of that image?
In that case…nooo… clue…

In case anyone else is having this same problem: the answer can be found by finding the defaultparticle material in the editor under Engine. When you make your material, simply copy its properties with your desired image as the texture sample.
