Course Overview

In this course you have learnt, how to insert a watermark into a document. A watermark is a faint image that is automatically added to the background on every page.

It sits behind the text and can be added to business letters, menus, catalogues, brochures, and many other document types.

You can use clip-art, AutoShapes, drawing objects or text as a watermark. Company or club logos for example, can be used as watermarks on invitations or newsletters.

The Watermark button is located in the Page Background group on the Page Layout tab and allows you to select the type of watermark that you want to create.

The selected picture is displayed on the page with handles that allow it to be re-sized and placed on the page.

When you add a watermark, Word automatically softens the appearance of the graphic and places it behind the text.
