Overlay Transparent Images

Is there an easy way to add an image to a report and make it transparent? I need to overlay a school district boundary over a map of plotted school locations, and I have a good overlay to use. However, I can't seem to find any setting or option to make it transparent and line it up with my existing map visualization. Thanks!

What image format is your overlay (png, jpeg, tiff, ...)?

I don't think there is a way of making an imported image transparent. You probably need to make it transparent first in some image editing app - Gimp, Photoshop... - save it as a png (keeping the transparency) and then import it.

Thank you! I was afraid of that but figured I'd ask in case I was missing something. I'll grab one of my graphic designers then. Thanks again!
