I got a question this morning about putting graphics in the background of labels, and it's really not that obvious. Thus, I'm blogging about it.
This applies to any graphic that you want to put behind some text, i.e. a watermark but just for one page, one label, or one paragraph.
How do you do it?
Here's what you do for regular text.
Choose Insert > Picture > From File as you would normally. Select the picture you want.
Right-click and choose Wrap > In Background.
To lighten the graphic, select it. You'll be able to use the Picture toolbar, shown. Click on Default to see the Grayscale and Watermark options, or click the Color icon on the picture toolbar to get the Color palette where you can increase brightness, decrease contrast, etc. Also try increasing transparency, another option on the Picture toolbar.
