A reader had a suggestion after reading my article about inserting a transparent image in Word.
“While your process works it has more steps than necessary. Why not use “Watermark.” It is much simpler and has fewer steps.”
Great idea! Lets’ check it out. Let’s open a Word document and click the Design tab at the top.
Then choose Watermark at the far right.
Choose Custom Watermark from the drop-down menu.
Check the box next to picture. Then check Washout if you want a transparent image. Click on Select Picture.
Use the drop-down scale menu to adjust the size.
Then click OK.
I will say that the one drawback to this is that you do not have as much control over the level of transparency as you do with the method I described earlier.
