Welcome to the forum.

See [Tutorial] Some useful hints on using images for a discussion on how best to handle images in Writer. It works for Impress too.

1. Writing on top of an image. Right-click the Image > Arrange > Send to back. You can now write on top of it.

2. Lighten the image. Use an Image editor like IrfanView and go Image > Colour corrections. Or reduce the transparency value - this can also be done in AOO if you go View > Toolbars ..., and select Picture. Read Chapters 4, 5 and 6 in the Impress Manual.

As a new poster you will find much useful information in the Impress Manual. May I suggest you bookmark the pages.

Press F1 to access the Help screen and search for your problem

When a pop-up window opens, click the Help button for extensive help on that function - it is often more comprehensive than the manual.
AOO 4.1.6, Windows 7 Home 64 bit

See the Writer Manual, the Writer FAQ, the Writer Tutorials and the Writer guide.

Remember: Always save your Writer files as .odt files. - see here for the many reasons why.
