There are plenty of opportunities to use a less restrained background for your slides — your choice for a slide background should complement the content of your presentation. For example, you’ll want a flashier background for slides created for kindergarten students — or if you were creating a PowerPoint greeting card. On the other hand, you may want a washed out, faded, or even a subtle patterned picture for a typical business presentation. PowerPoint 2010 does provide you with 12 default slide Background Styles which can be applied to both the Slide Master and individual Slide Layouts — other than these default background styles, you can also opt to change the slide background to a solid color, a gradient, a pattern or texture, or even a picture.

Explore different options available to create custom background for Slide Master and Layouts in PowerPoint 2010.
