When you adjust the opacity of a clip using the washout feature, you can add subtle touches to your document, such as a watermark or a faded background.
Consider this clip art of a sun, which has bright colors and interesting shapes. Say you want to use it, but would rather that it be understated.
To wash out clip art
- In the Microsoft Office document or file that contains the clip you want to wash out, click the clip.
- On the Picture toolbar, click the Format Picture button .
- Select the Picture tab.
- Under Image Control, select Washout from the Color drop-down list, and then click OK.
Your clip has now changed from bold to subtle. You can use this more subtle image in many ways, including as a background for a flyer, as shown here.
