To Set a Transparent Color in a Graphic
Although the graphic now is the right color scheme, it is diffi cult to distinguish the objects in the graphic
because they use shades of the same color. In Word, you can make one color in a graphic transparent, that is, remove
the color. In this project, you make the lighter shades of teal in the graphic transparent, which results in a graphic that
is teal and white — making the image easier to identify. The following steps set a transparent color in a graphic.

With the graphic still selected,
click the Recolor button on the
