Change the brightness of the picture.

See this article for Word 2007:

Change the brightness, contrast, or transparency of a picture

or this one for Word 2003:

Change the contrast or brightness of a picture

What you want is called a watermark. How to accomplish what you want depends
on the version of Word are you using. Could we have that please? :-)

Please post all follow-up questions to the newsgroup. Requests for
assistance by email cannot be acknowledged.
