Desktop Magnet opacity in Windows 8

I saw this issue discussed regarding Windows 7, and wanted to follow up to see if there is any workaround.

I am running Win8 Pro and have it set up to cycle through a group of wallpaper images. I have a WWL Desktop Magnet in place, but unless the current background image is very dark, I can barely see the map in the Magnet image.

Is there a workaround or upcoming fix?

I’ll take a look and see if there is a way to work around this in Windows 8.
