To have a transparent picture it is needed to use a .gif image with the transparency color set and to create the window with WS_EX_LAYERED extended style. See example 2.

Bitmap files don't support transparency. The only two widely used formats that support transparency are .gif and .png. Autoit doesn't support .png therefore your only real way to make something transparent in autoit is to, as Bigdod pointed out, use a .gif image.
