I'm not sure if the report engine will support that or not since images are drawn onto the printer rather than the screen.

It will work for the on-screen preview but not the printout. That's because currently images are painted directly onto the printer's canvas which unlike the screen does not support transparency. To overcome this would require modifying the plug-in to buffer the printout to a very large off-screen bitmap, then transferring that to the printer. It would take several hours to determine if this will even work.
