Default Watermark in table cell (2007)

I want to insert a watermark in each table cell (it's actually a postcard
template). I've experimented with using a picture as a fill and setting it
to 95% transparent, but the pic is still too dark. When I do a traditional
watermark, it locates on the center of the page, overlapping cells.

Any help?

Thumbs up Answer: Watermark in table cell (2007)

Sure, I can help you with that! Here's how you can insert a watermark in each table cell in Microsoft Word 2007:
  1. First, select the table cell where you want to insert the watermark.
  2. Next, go to the Page Layout tab in the ribbon and click on Watermark in the Page Background group.
  3. In the Printed Watermark dialog box, select Picture watermark and click on Select Picture.
  4. Choose the picture you want to use as the watermark and click on Insert.
  5. In the Scale section, select Auto to automatically adjust the size of the watermark to fit the cell.
  6. In the Washout section, adjust the transparency of the watermark by moving the slider to the right. The further to the right you move the slider, the more transparent the watermark will be.
  7. Click on OK to apply the watermark to the selected cell.
  8. Repeat these steps for each table cell where you want to insert a watermark.

That's it! Your table cells should now have a watermark that is transparent enough to be visible but not too dark. Let me know if you have any other questions or if there's anything else I can help you with.

See http://www.gmayor.com/graphics_on_labels.htm. Labels are tables, so it
amounts to the same thing.
