Win 8 Does Not Support Transparent Backgrounds For Account Picture?

Hi All!

I set my Account Picture to an image file (.png format) with a transparent background, however, the background shows up as black instead of clear. :confused:

Here is the original image (shown in Paint.NET). Note the transparency.

And here is what the image looks like as my Account picture.
w8_accountpic2.png

Are there any other image formats that Windows 8 supports that would allow me to have a transparent background for my Account picture?

Thanks!
