How To Remove Faint Grey Border Around Transparent Image?

I have a transparent image on a document - a homemade 'watermark' - and it works fine, printing out just as I want, with the text beneath showing through. But what I don't like is the grey box borders showing in the display of the page in writer. I have set the borders to 'none' and sure enough that's how it prints but I'd also like 'none' in the display of the file. Can that be achieved?

i just tried but couldn't find how to. all i could find was that upvote thing - i thought it might do it but it didn't. 'thread tools' seemed to have nothing. why it isn't an option down there along with 'flag offensive' etc. I don't know. Yep, I know I did it once but I don't know how now.

If a question is not aswered, it will not have the mark. May be you could provide more information needed prior to answer it.

Here are four of your questions that have answers:

ahh.. i found it. why didn't you say? 'underneath that up arrow/down arrow thing in the left margin that sometimes has a number in it and sometimes doesn't - and the tick won't appear unless there's an answer' ...

right. that should do it then? :)
