How can I make the text in my letter just slightly overlay the top and bottom of a centered, margin-to-margin image within my document. The image is faded at the top and bottom so that the image is just visible---you know, a gradient fade. Anyway, I thought it would be nice to have my text blend right into the image with the text overlaying this faded part just slightly---whatever the most aesthetic text-to-image overlay ratio happens to be. Anyway, thank you for your help.

I think I'm looking for a function that just automatically understands that the text above and below should just slightly overlay the faded parts of the image. –  Mabrixly Apr 17 at 23:58
    
Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. In particular, you should post a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your question. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and suggest a way to achieve the desired effect when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. –  cfr Apr 18 at 0:02
    
I don't have clue how to fade an image, but overlaid text is a snap. See, for example, tex.stackexchange.com/questions/171483/… –  Steven B. Segletes Apr 18 at 2:16
    
May be you are talking about watermark. This can be done in several ways - background, xwatermark.... –  Harish Kumar Apr 18 at 4:00
