Screen Doesn't show Transparent or High Opacity Images

When looking at images with a watermark. The kind that are semi transparent but still able to be recognized it is not showing up. I look at the same image on a regular old "crappy" monitor and *BAM* there is the watermark. I think I've tried everything, I am at a loss. Any help would be appreciated. Do I need to recallibrate the monitor, how do I do that?

Calibrate in the monitor menu the RGB values to sRGB space and disable all optimizations (movie mode, text mode...). Leave it in "Normal".
Also set carefully the contrast in the monitor to something like 60% and choose the right GAMMA in the image editing software.
Make sure you are using the native resolution of the LCD and check in the user's manual how to do the adjustments because all monitors are different.
All those settings are one-time programmable, once you got the right settings they don't need to be changed again.

How to disactivate or bypass the OHP sensor on the phaser for semi opaque paper (calc paper)?


Hi Rich,
Thank you for your lengthy and informative question that does help.
My first thoughts:
Did you try and tell the driver what particular type of paper you wanted to print on such as none Xerox recommended.
A thought just occurred if you were wanting to print transparencies then the printer would have to print strong colours at 100% because once you place the image on a OHP the image would look really washed out.
All the Xerox printers I've ever worked on don't have sensors that look at the opaqueness of the media, they do however have transparency sensors because once the edge of the paper has been detected a jam could occur, so lever type sensors are used to actually feel the media.
Good luck.

How do I place a watermark on a photo with photoshop?


place-watermark-photo-photoshop-ossnw04fknubfptbovfyfssb-1-0.png

0. Paste or create a layer over the top of the 'main image'.
1. Select the layer you want to be the watermark.
2. Change opacity to what you want, ensuring you can still see the layer underneath it.

Note: you could also change the blending on the watermark layer if you wanted a different effect.

How to Add a Background Picture to a Microsoft Word Document 2007


t is easy to add a background picture by using the Watermark feature. First, you will click on “Page Layout”. In that menu bar (or ribbon), click on “Watermark”. A window menu will open. At the bottom of that window menu, click on “Custom Watermark”.
In the new menu that opens, check “Picture Watermark”, then “Select Picture” to find an image file on your computer to use. You have the option to have the picture look faded, as a watermark, or displayed in its full color. Check “Washout” for the faded option, or uncheck, to view the background picture in its full glory.
You will then need to choose the size of your background picture, by selecting one of the options under “Scale”.
To remove the watermark, simply click “Watermark”, and choose the “Remove Watermark” option.
Even if you don’t choose the “Washout” option, the background image will appear faded while you are working on your page. But, if you view the page through “Page Preview”, you can see how the background will look when printed.
To get to the "Page Preview" command, click on the button.jpgOffice Button on the upper left hand corner of the Word 2007 screen. Move your cursor over the "Print" option, and another menu will open to its right. On that menu, click "Print Preview".

I want to print which shows transparent. Like Executive Bond in Sheet. Is it Possible?


If you mean that you want to place a watermark on the page, then use the watermark function.

If you mean that you want to create a page header then use the "Header/Footer" options.

These are functions of the application you are using such as Word.

If you want the permentlely on your page, create and save a macro on the printer so that you can call it when you need it.

Cut image and transfer to transparent background using gimp


Hi Jody,

Gimp can be frustrating, but it's one of the most amazing and powerful free applications out there. You're right...what you're trying to do is very simple, but you need to know a few tricks to get it to work well.

First, you need to use .PNG as .JPG files don't support transparency. When you try to save a file in .JPG that has a transparency, or alpha, channel, you should be prompted to "export" the image by flattening all layers, which essentially replaces all the transparent areas with the current background color (usually white).

Second, there's a tool that's been added to the most recent versions of the Gimp that does exactly what you want to do. It's called the "Foreground Select Tool" and is really simple to use once you get the hang of it. This tool was added in Gimp 2.4, so you'll need at least that version or higher to use it. This tool uses a two-step process: first you draw a rough circle around the object you want to cut out (your daughter), then you "paint" over the foreground object so the tool can sample all the colors you're wanting to extract. This sounds strange until you do it...once you understand, it's really pretty simple. You can read the docs for this tool here. There's also a YouTube video that shows the basic process. Apparently no sound on that video, but at least you can see what to do.

Not sure what was happening when you tried to use the scissors. There are so many variables, it's hard to tell. You probably didn't need the extra step of adding a transparent layer...when you had your selection copied to the clipboard, you could have used "paste into" or "paste as new layer" or "paste as new image" to get what you want.

Let me know if this doesn't answser your question.
