MS Word - Background/Watermark non transparent - how to
I am trying to insert a Background/Watermark image into a Doc. (using Word 2007) I prepared a image with exactly the size of a Page and inserted it like this:
Page Layout > Watermark > Custom Watermark > Picture Watermark scale 100% and deselected Washout.
The Image is now placed exactly like i want it and acts like a backgound... but eventhough i deselected washout it still looks pale... like it would be just 50% opaque.
I then tried Page Layout > Page Color > Fill Effects > Picture and selected my image.
now the image has the correct color, but it does not fit on the page anymore... it's alot bigger and I also read in some other posts that images insrted this way will not print.
To make it short.... does anyone know how I can insert an image as a background into a MS Word document and make it look/print/scale exactly the way the image looks and not get just a pale washed out version.
thanks ; )
EDIT: I think I got it... it seems it just has that washed out look as long as the doc is still edited. I converted it to a pdf and now it looks the way it's supposed to.
If someone still knows a better way to do that please let me know.
