    The image that you wish to place on your part should have a transparent (alpha channel) background. It should be an image file that supports transparent backgrounds e.g. PNG.

    e.g.

    inventor-image-transparent-1.png

    Select inventor-image-transparent-2.png and select the face for the sketch

    Select Sketch ribbon tab > Insert panel > inventor-image-transparent-3.png

    Browse to your image and select inventor-image-transparent-4.png

    Position accordingly

    Right click on the image > inventor-image-transparent-5.png

    Select Use Image Alpha

    Select inventor-image-transparent-7.png

    The background part colour will now be visible through the transparent section of the image.
