Hi!

It's shadings and transparency again.

For most things transparency is not required since the background
colour (white) can be used instead, to achieve the same effect
(thanks Hans for the reimplementation/cleanup a while ago). For one
use case I worked around this by including an external file and
overlay the external file (see attached example).

Background: In the actual documents the transparent overlays overlay
images to have the edges fade into the page background (only the
centre is of interest).

Is there a method that does not require an external file or
pre-processing? Using the external file works. Just wondering if
there's a better - more integrated - way.
