I am trying to create a flyer that has an image in the background.
I need to be able to change the transparency or opacity of the original image so I can read the text on the sheet.
I have tried inserting a picture, and this doesn't provide what I am looking for.
I also have tried inserting a shape, then filling it with my picture and changing the transparency. This provides the look I desire, however when I print the sheet the picture is back to 0% transparency and I can't read any of my text.


I am using Excel 2007
