I need to make an abstract for school for Music class but the front page must be made in MS Word (with heading and stuff) and printed so I downloaded a wallpaper that suits the topic I'm going to write about. I only know how to insert the picture without making it an actual background (on which I can type, insert other images, etc.). I searched in the options but couldn't find one that sets it as background. Is there a way I can do so? If yes, where's the option?
I'm using MS Word 2007 by the way.

Paste the picture in MS Word. Make sure the size is big enough to occupy the whole page to avoid distortion or blurness of the image. Right click the picture, select Wrap text and click Behind text. You can also try to lighten up the picture so that the text or any other graphical elements can be seen nicely in your doc.
Chris:
The best way to do this is to position and resize the image so it fills the page using the standard layout options (right-click the image -> Format)
While you can set an image as background, Word will display it on all pages and tile it arbitrarily.

In my version, after pasting a picture onto the page, I was able to right-click the picture, select Wrap Text, and then select Behind Text. This allowed text to go on top of the picture. I don't know if this is available in your version, though.
