How to Insert a Watermark in OpenOffice


OpenOffice is a word processing software that can create spreadsheets, graphics and databases. The software is free, but donations can be made when it is being downloaded. Adding a watermark to a document can be done if you already have a graphic available. A person who receives an OpenOffice document via email, or by other means, will need the software on his computer to open it, or software that is able to change the format of the document.

  • Select "Format" on the top bar. Scroll down to "Page" and click on it.

  • Select "Background." Choose the "As" drop-down menu and replace "Color" with "Graphic."

  • Browse for your watermark file by clicking on "Browse." Click on your watermark.

  • Click on "Position," "Area" or "Tile" options which will appear in a box beside your watermark. "Position" will put the watermark in the dot that you select, which is located beside the three options. "Area" will designate the watermark to take up the whole zone in the box -- as many as can possibly fit. "Tile" will "zoom in" the watermark. You can choose one of these three options.

  • Close the window. The watermark will be saved as part of the regular document, on which you can write or add graphics.
