You can make transparency vary for each category using a field value if you click the Advanced button in the Symbology tab (EDIT: available in 10.0). Now you have to see what's more convenient between adding and populating a field with the percentage, and duplicate the layer as @artwork proposes. The first option will surely save extra work if you need to ...

As far as I know, there is no way to make text transparent in ArcMap. My suggestion for a workaround would be to export to PDF and then add the watermark using Adobe. That's what I do to add watermarks to my maps. The limitation of this would be that it requires Adobe Standard I believe. If you don't have Adobe Standard, here is a link with some other ...

Transparency is not a property of a polygon itself, rather it is a property of the layer containing the polygon (like symbology). Take your polygon data, and store it in an IFeatureLayer. From IFeatureLayer, get ILayerEffects, which is an interface of IFeatureLayer. Transparency (0% to 100%) is a property of ILayerEffects. Also, note this from ESRI ...

I'm assuming that you're trying to set the IColor as RGBA with the transparency in the colour... that's not how it works, when you create an IColor from RGBA only the RGB is set, the alpha is ignored... see IColor, the options are CMYK, Gray, HLS, HSV, RGB - none of these have Alpha. To get transparency on a layer you need to use the ILayerEffects Interface ...

If you have an RGB map, you can use the pansharpening option in the symbology (RGB composite) of your RGB, selecting the Hillshade instead of a panchromatic image.

You can only set the transparency if you symbolize say a point feature as a chart which in your case is pie chart. Please see the Symbology tab of your feature class. After this, you can set the transparency of your feature class from the Display tab and this will reflect on the pie charts.

You should use two different STYLE blocks, one for the fill and one for the stroke: CLASS STYLE OUTLINECOLOR r g b #stroke WIDTH 3 END STYLE COLOR r g b #fill OPACITY 50 END END Ordering is important, you'll get different visual results if you swap the order of the STYLE blocks.

Assuming you're trying to use it within a GIS-system, QGis does the trick. It's a free GIS-system, and you can set transparancy layer-based, toggle layers on and off, switch around the order, ... Whereas - to the best of my knowledge - Arcview or MapInfo's Proviewer do not offer the option to combine layers. That said, transparancy and opacity are not ...

There is a Knowledge Base document entitled FAQ: What is the best format to use when inserting logos into a map document while maintaining transparency? which says: Logos are usually designed in a vector illustration package such as Adobe Illustrator, and then exported to a pixel-based format. However, exporting the logo as EMF will maintain the ...

No, transparency can only be defined at the layer level, not the individual symbols. The work around would be to have multiple versions of that layer in the table of contents defined at different transparencies based on a layer definition query if needed.
