Pages for Mac: Change the transparency of an image, shape, text box, line, arrow, or video in a Pages document

Change the transparency of an image, shape, text box, line, arrow, or video in a Pages document

You can create interesting effects by making objects more or less opaque. When you put a low-opacity object on top of another object, for example, the bottom object shows through.

Transparent balloon shapes overlapping. The bottom balloon shows through the transparent balloon on top.
  1. Click to select an image, shape, text box, line, arrow, drawing, or video, or select multiple objects.

    If you select a text box, everything in the text box, including the text and any background color, is changed.

  2. For a drawing, click the Drawing tab in the Format  sidebar, then drag the Opacity slider; for any other item, click the Style tab in the sidebar, then drag the Opacity slider.
