    Question Custom Image as the window in JFrame

    Greetings!

    I am looking for a solution that will allow me to use a custom background image to replace the JFrame window.
    I am able to add a background Image, however I am not able to remove the "white" that is supposed to be transparent.

    For example; if the image was shaped like a bird with transparent background (.PNG), I would like that to be put on the JFrame. Usually it will be a square with the image in the middle with white background, which I am unable to remove.

    Help appreciated.
