How do I add background picture to word file? I tried adding watermark and it works perfect as far as looking on the screen; however, it does not print. Also, I have enable print background colors and images, but it does not print the background.

It prints on my printer, though it is very pale - have you tried printing to a different printer?  It may be a driver issue

hmmm - known issue?

I know you said you already selected "Print background colors and images check box under Printing Options" - but the KB article doesn't give any other solution/statement.

Do you have another printer to try it on?

Instead of having it as one image (Header,watermark & footer), try putting your header information in the header, footer infomation in the footer and your photo in the watermark. To do that go to Page Layout-Page Background-Watermark-Custom Watermark. Like the others, mine printed out but was very pale. Setting my printer to best setting darkened it, but just barely.
