Delicate background image

Sorry, I don't known exactly what I am looking for.

I'd like to generate a delicate (soft or transparent ?) background, e.g. a flower.
It should look more like a watermark but (in a layer) below the image.

Does anybody have an idea what I am looking for and how to create it?

Sorry for this crazy question. Thanks for a hint,
Helmut

Assuming I understand your request, here are two options.

1. Create two layers. The lower layer has a background of your choice. The upper layer has your image. Adjust the opacity of the image to suit.

2. Create two layers. The lower layer has your image. The upper layer has a solid color of your choice; adjust the opacity to suit.

In both cases the rest of the content resides in layers above the two background layers.

And another way:

3. Set the background image in a lower layer. Adjust the opacity of the upper layer(s) to allow the background to show.
