Custom Backgrounds for Slide Master and Layouts in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Created: Monday, March 7, 2016, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 3:45 am



Content and appearance are the two major components of presentation slides. Among them, the former is always more significant than the latter — but that does not mean that you should neglect the latter. A simple looking presentation with a clean background is always a great idea since that doesn’t overpower your message. Yet, there are plenty of opportunities to go beyond a plain background and use a less restrained background instead — 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.

Learn how to apply custom backgrounds to both the Slide Master and Slide Layouts in PowerPoint 2016.
