Hi,
I need help to show an transparent WPF form with a Picture in my VB.NET application.
It must be an WPF form because of the real transparency in WPF.

Thank you in advance.

Unlike System.Windows.Forms (better avoid using transparency there), everything in WPF can be done transparent. I don't even understand how it could be a problem.

Please see my comment to the question. There is no such problem in WPF. Just look at this:

And of course, exactly as in System.Windows.Forms, you can use semi-transparent color with alpha-channel, for appropriate color spaces:
