You upload it to wherever you like and then use it as a background image. If you are just wanting to make the post background slightly transparent you might be able to use the following in the Post Container box in ATO>Style Posts & Pages. You just don't want to set the opacity too low as it affects both the background and the text.
HTML Code:
.post-bodycopy {
    opacity: .7;
}

The code I gave you would go in the CSS Inserts box in the theme options. You would use something like Photoshop to make a semi transparent png and then use the CSS for background in the Post Container box in the theme option to assign it.
