Does anyone know of a way I can put an image on my desktop?

I want to display an image on my desktop. Not as the wallpaper, but above that. If I had a real picture and set it down on an actual desktop, it would stay there. I want to do that in Windows. I can't find a way to do it that doesn't involve having the picture open in another viewer program of some sort, with title bars and menus and frames, etc. I just want the border-free image on my desktop. Sort of like a sticky note, only with an image instead of text.

I've found a way to do it, that accomplishes most of what I want. It can be done using a Windows Sidebar gadget, to display just a single image. I had to jury rig it with the particular image gadget I have, which seems to be designed for slideshows. This works for what I need, for now. I had hoped for a more elegant solution, surprised this is not more common.
