Learn PowerPoint 2010: Texture Fills for Slide Backgrounds

Created: Tuesday, November 1, 2011, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am



When you want to format your slide background to look different than the readymade styles available in PowerPoint, you can certainly explore both options we have already covered in separate tutorials: solid or gradient filled slide backgrounds. In addition, you could also choose a picture or texture fill for your slide backgrounds. Note that both picture or texture fills work very similarly — but choosing one option over the other can make the same background look so different. While a picture background results in your slide using a single picture as a backdrop, using a texture background can result in the same picture being tiled across the slide background. Also some pictures lend themselves better to being used as textures, especially if they are seamless.
