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.

  1. Select an image, shape, text box, line, arrow, drawing, or video.

    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.
