    I have attached a file that contains a picture I use for name tags (file also attached so you can see my problem). I need the picture to be transparent on the name tag, which has a .jpg clip art beneath. Not sure if there is a way to do this or not. I have access to Word 2007, if that would give me more options. I used Word 2003 for the attached files.

    Is there a format to save the image if I re-scan that will give me the capability to have just the outline of the image show and the rest transparent?

    Yes there is, save it as a gif or png with white as the transparent color.
    I use irfanview to do this, it is easy and free.

    OK, sounds great! So how do I download/access what you did to test it?

    Right-click the image above and "Save Image As"
    Save it to a place and with a name you can remember, keeping the .png extension of course. Then use it in your Word Processor.
