A demo which shows how to use a large image to create a non-rectangular interface with transparency. In this example, I used PowerPoint to create the main interface background. I took a screenshot of it and pasted into mspaint where I added the transparent color (pink). Then I applied it as a background image and modified the windows transparent color to be pink as well. With the background image applied, I just overlayed a couple tweaked controls in the appropriate places. While this demo shows some neat rounded effects, you can get as crazy as you want with your interfaces.
