Can someone help me figure out how to add an image in a Pages 09 file to be used as a background image?

Coming from Word I could put an image in a document and then type over it, format it, etc.

Can this be done in Pages 09?

Thanks!

    Hi!
    Have a look in this thread. Look for "Adding watermarks to your document "

    rw,

    You Paste or Drag an image to the page, position and size it, then Arrange > Send Object to Background. Now you can type over it.

    Ok, how do I make a watermark text image? I want to place the words "Copy Do Not Duplicate" in the background of a draft I have typed. How can I do that in Pages?

    I'm not sure I understand the distinction between a background image and a watermark.

    I see that you are pretty new to the discussions. Welcome. Just so you know in the future, it's always best to start a new topic unless you are just asking for clarification on the solution offered to the original question.

    So, often, watermarks are faint. Is that what you want, a faint background image?

    I have managed to create the background I want text that reads, "Copy Do Not Replicate", but now I need to know how to replicate or copy that through out the document. I am doing it manually at the moment, but it's a 353 document. Btw, I did not see where I can post a new message on here? When I went to help it said to reply to a reply similar to mine? I don't know.

    See "Letterhead and Follower Sets":

    Follow the instructions for moving your image to a Section Master and then capturing the page.
