most transparent terms let you set a shade color and percentage, which
allows enough of the image through to look good but not enough to annoy.
For instance, here's what I use:
aterm -fn "-bigelow & holmes-lucida
console-medium-r-normal-*-*-130-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1" --transparent -fg
white -tint blue +sb --shading 40
of course different tints for different machines is nice too :-)
