This Entry explains how to create a image watermark in word 2007.

First off you will need a copy of Microsoft Office 2007. Once obtained go to Microsoft Word 2007 from there follow the following steps below.

  • Choose Page Layout -> Page Background -> Watermark. From the panel, you can choose one of Word's built-in watermarks (such as "Urgent" or "Confidential"), or choose the Custom Watermark item, and then work in the Printed Watermark dialog box.
  • Click the Select Picture button in the Printed Watermark dialog box. Word displays the Insert Picture dialog box
  • Navigate to the folder that contains the picture, select the picture, and then click the Insert button. Word closes the Insert Picture dialog box and adds the picture's name to the Printed Watermark dialog box
  • In the Scale drop-down list, select Auto if you want Word to scale the picture automatically to what Word considers a suitable size. Otherwise, select the scaling percentage you want: 50%, 100%, 150%, 200%, 500%, or a custom percentage that you type into the Scale box
  • Select the Washout check box if you want Word to wash the picture out to give a more subtle effect. If the picture is already subtle enough, clear this check box
  • Click the Apply button. Word applies the watermark to the document so you can see how it looks. Make any adjustments needed. For example, you may need to choose a different value in the Scale drop-down list
  • Click the OK button. Word closes the Printed Watermark dialog box and inserts the picture

    Many thanks to Anna Perez.

    I had already discovered this but it doesn't let me "position" the watermark where I would like it. Word 2003 was simple as you could just insert a picture and then choose the "washout" option, which didn't affect the position of the picture.
