Hi Bill,

you may e.g. use "Inset". But there is a slight problem consisting of 

sizing the picture.

An example where the sizing is done "by hand". :

=======================

bg = Import["ExampleData/coneflower.jpg"];

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, Pi}, PlotStyle -> {Thickness[0.05]},

  Prolog -> Inset[bg, Center, Center, 3]]

=======================

Daniel
