How do I make my Picture control bitmap TRANSPARENT?

How do I make part(s) of my Picture control bitmap transparent?
It's positioned on top of a dialog box in a Windows '95 app.
I have tried setting the background colour to be the same as
the parts of the bitmap I want to be transparent (in MSVC++
Graphics editor), and setting the control's "transparent"
extended style, but the whole image stays resolutely opaque...
I don't know if it's relevant or not, but there is a static
(opaque) text control sitting on top of the picture control as
well. However, this only obscures a small part of the picture
control and doesn't cover the bits I want to be transparent.
