Gradient Fills for Slide Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Gradient fills are typically blended fills between two or more colors that graduate and merge from one color to another — they are sometimes also called fountain fills or blended fills in other programs. Other than applying gradients as shape fill, you can also apply Gradient fills to your Slide Background. However, make sure that the two or more colors that you use for your Gradient work well with text and other foreground elements on all your slides.
