Add a new layer.

Place your water mark text on that layer.

Press F4 to edit this layer's properties.

Reduce the Opacity of this layer.

Click OK to finalize.

I have a logo (designed and finalized)

this design saved as JPG file, want to put it as a background in my slides to be displayed in each page,

as well in the footer and header, but should be displayed as a shadow,

I could not find the way to add layer and make this effect done, is there any video or some way easy to explain it?

Thanks for the efforts always!

Why can't you use the steps that BoltBait gave you? It should work.

See the attached files explaining what is showing at my end side,

at step 03, the opacity at any degree, when I click OK, still showing me the same displayed picture,

which means if I leave it at 255, or less or more, no any effects,

I followed the steps as mentioned, but no results, probably there is something missing that should be set before or something else,

thanks for feedback anyway,

You are adjusting the opacity of an empty layer.

Turn on the Layers window so you can see what your doing. Press F7.


And follow BoltBait's step, in order he gave them.

My question:

I need to use [design] as a background,

How ti make this as shadow, means to appear lesser than the main content in the document..

The step 1 = to open the file that needed to be edited or make apply the needed effects as shown already,,


so guys u keep telling: not working of the correct lays, follow the above steps,,, press F7, F4 or whatever....

IF i knew how to do it, I won't really waste my time and your time to post this here.. 


WHY not just explain it in simple steps, step 1, step 2, step 3, step 4.. etc ??? then close this topic

You have to use transparency for your logo image (jpg isn't working as it has a white background).

You're welcome.


But your post is confusing.

I don't understand the question if you managed to make it.


To make multiple logos, I used Rotate/Zoom layer (Ctrl+Shift+Z) with rotate + zoom (reduce) + tiling



Yes, my question simply how to make a background images / logos as in the attached file:
