    Select the background image and with the inspector, go to the graphics tab and check 'reflection'.

    No it's not the reflection effect. It's something like this:

    I can't find it in the graphics part of the inspector.

    Are we referring to opacity? The lower the percentage, the more "see-through" the graphic is.

    You can accomplish this so-called 'glass effect' using the opacity, if the original image is shaded before hand. In this instance, I would create the two sections of the image (glassy and matte/opaque) using an image editor then paste them into pages and apply the transparency to the edge piece or w/e.
