Win32::GUI background image?

I am used to writing perl CGI scripts but I am very new to writing perl applications.
I have tried out perl2exe to convert my scripts to executables and I have installed the Win32::GUI module to create a user interface for my new application.

I create a new window for example:-

use Win32::GUI;
    $main = Win32::GUI::Window->new(
                -name   => 'Main',
                -width  => 796,
                -height => 549,
                -minsize => [796, 549],
                -background => '#fff000',
                -text   => 'My Application',

I can set the background colour of the window (yellow) but I do not seem to be able to set a background image. This is vital because I want my GUI buttons to appear over the image backdrop.

How can I do this?
