When a new chart is inserted in your PowerPoint presentation, you will find that it takes the fills and border types based on the Theme of your presentation. You can change the fills and borders of charts as required. Other than that, you can always use pictures as fills. For example, imagine a chart that shows fruit exports and each column of the chart is filled with pictures of a particular fruit type rather than the conventional solid color fills or geometric patterns? Also, if you wanted to show how the export of grapes has increased over the years, your column chart would have all columns filled with pictures of grapes stacked one over the other? In PowerPoint 2011, you can always do just that with your charts as explained in this tutorial!

Learn how to use a picture as a fill for your chart series and also how to stack or scale the picture fill in PowerPoint 2011 for Mac.
