Setting a Picture Background

Quite a few options are available for creating a background for a picture. So many in fact, you may forget why you wanted to create the background in the first place. You will recognize the options for a picture background from the steps to create a page background, covered in Chapter 2.

  1. Click the Page Design tab.
  2. Click the Background command button to display a palette of options: No Background, Solid Background, and Gradient Background.
  3. Click More Backgrounds to display the Format Background dialog box. This is the same dialog box that you worked with in Chapter 2.

  4. Select one of the option buttons to display the specific settings that can be adjusted for each type of fill.

  5. For example, select Gradient Fill, and then make your adjustments to the gradient options that appear.
  6. Click OK when you are satisfied with the settings and you are ready to apply it as the picture background.
