As a happy, satisfied and devoted Mac user, I’m legally bound to love everything that Apple does right?  Right? (are my lawyers listening??).  In any event, I HAVE noticed (as have a handful of my clients) that there tends to be an “issue” when you import an image with transparencies into Microsoft Word for the Mac (okay this really is a Microsoft issue….. Apple is off the hook once again).  Images imported do not read properly and can even show up as a simple black box.

Quick Tip:  Depending on the image and how you are presenting it, saving the image as a pdf file will correct most of the transparency issues.
