You can reference an image in a substack for example, and in addition to setting the windowShape of the stack to the ID of the image, set the backPattern of the card of your mainstack to the same image ID.  You don’t need to worry about aligning/positioning images, and you will likely get better blending at the edges of the window. 

If you have any variable translucency in your source image, you’ll need to play with the backColor of the stack as this can “show through” the translucency of the card.
