The Anatomy of a Theme
The Anatomy of a Theme
Themes control several aspects of your slide design. The theme determines the locations of
placeholders, the color scheme, the slide background, and any graphics that may be part of the
theme. These characteristics vary considerably from theme to theme. For example, the title may be
on the top of slides in one theme and on the bottom of slides in another theme. These variations
give each theme its own flavor and personality.
A Placeholder
Placeholder positions
vary from theme to
theme. Each theme has a
set of slide masters that
control where
placeholders appear on
each slide layout.
B Graphic Elements
Some themes include
graphic elements that
are typically part
of the background. To
avoid accidentally
changing them, you can
modify them on the slide
masters, but not on
individual slides.
D Background
Themes specify the background
applied to slides. The background
might be a solid color, a gradient,
or a pattern, and may include
E Effects
Effects give a dimensional
appearance to graphics by adding
shadows, transparency, 3-D, and
more. A theme may apply a
particular style of effect to graphics.
C Color Scheme
Themes control the colors applied
to slide text, the background, and
objects such as tables, charts,
and SmartArt Graphics. You can
change colors on individual slides.
