Antwort: FOSI - put an image in background

If you put a graphic in the header it will go on the page before the text and graphics. Unfortunately, unless your graphics have transparent white space, any graphics on a page will have their white space obstruct the background. If you put the background in the footer, it will go on the page after the text, but unless the background is transparent, it will obstruct all of the text and graphics on the page.
Unless all of your graphics are already transparent, it is probably easier to put the background in the footer and make your background transparent, tather than change all of your existing graphics.

If you are using Adobe Acrobat 6 or 7, you can create a PDF file of your background image and use it as a watermark or background on all pages. You can even rotate it. This only works with Acrobat 6 or 7.

Hy,
funny things may happen :-), but this solution works fine for me.
I have

where "back" is an Entity defining a small gray image.
This image is stretched in a way that it appears as background for my
flowtext area. Inside the flowtext area I have text as well as images, no
problems with transparency or unwanted page breaks.

Perhaps it depends on the Epic version you use or the graphic format??

How to code the insertion of the pdf file like an image?

If you are using Adobe Acrobat 6 or 7, you can create a PDF file of your
background image and use it as a watermark or background on all pages. You
can even rotate it. This only works with Acrobat 6 or 7.

If you have the "Acrobat Distiller" printer or, as in the case of Acrobat 6 or 7, the "Adobe PDF" printer, just open your image in whatever viewing/editing program you use, and print it, using "Adobe PDF" (or Acrobat Distiller) as your printer. This will create a PDF file. If you have installed the complete Adobe Acrobat suite correctly, you should have an Adobe PDF printer on your system.

Maybe I misunderstood your question. In Acrobat 6 or 7, from the Document menu, select Add Watermark & Background. The resulting dialog allows you to choose either watermark or background, the source PDF file for your background or watermark, the Page rand (all or selected range) vertical and horizontal alignment, rotation and opacity. You can also see a preview of the page in this same dialog.
I find this method to be a lot easier than screwing around with FOSI headers and footers.
