      Tip: To adjust a picture’s relative lightness or transparency — or the difference between its darkest and lightest areas (contrast), in the Format Background pane, under Fill, slide the Transparency bar to the left or right.

      For example, the following picture is set as a background for a slide, and the Transparency level is set to 48%, making it easier to see the text on the slide.
