# concurrent use of geometry package with watermarks

I'd like to include a graphic as watermark in a document with the twoside option and asymmetric page margins adjusted with the geometry package. There's a plethora of packages that are suitable for the task, but with a few restrictions:

The xwatermark package is simple to use, but I can't specify options for even and odd pages at the same time, so either the watermark appears only on half of the pages or it's page-centered rather than text-centered.
With packages such as watermark, I can't exclude the watermark on specific pages, e.g. the title page and certain pages with diagrams.
Lastly, packages like atbegshi provide access to dvi internals, but I don't have the time to work it all out myself.

So my question is: what is the most elegant way to implement such a flexible watermark? If it is relevant, I'm currently using LaTeX with PSTricks on Windows 7, but may well switch to ConTeXt with PGF/TikZ on Linux in the future...

If the watermark package otherwise works, why can't you use its \thiswatermark{} command to place an empty watermark on the pages you don't want to have watermarks on? –  Alan Munn Feb 6 '11 at 18:28
@alan-munn as it turned out, I just messed up the \put command--now it works fine. And since its position is relative to the text area, I don't need to distinguish between even and odd pages... –  pazathoth Feb 7 '11 at 15:38
I suggest closing this question then, since it was based on a miscoding rather than an actual problem with the packages mentioned. –  Alan Munn Feb 7 '11 at 18:38
In xwatermark package use two separate calls to \newwatermark to specify different options for even and odd pages. A minimal example will be useful here. –  Ahmed Musa Nov 10 '12 at 18:18
