Choosing a Theme for Your Presentation
Choosing a Theme for Your Presentation
PowerPoint offers many different themes in the Themes gallery, and if you
happen to have PowerPoint presentations at hand, you can borrow a theme
from another presentation. Experimenting with themes is easy. You are
hereby encouraged to test different themes until you find the right one.
Starting on the Design tab, use one of these techniques to select a new
theme for your presentation:
Selecting a theme in the Themes gallery: Open the Themes gallery and
move the pointer over different themes to ”live-preview” them. Click a
theme to select it.
Borrowing a theme from another presentation: On the Design tab, open
the Themes gallery, and click Browse for Themes. You see the Choose
Theme or Themed Document dialog box. Locate and select a presentation
with a theme you can commandeer for your presentation and click the
Apply button.
To refine your theme, choose an option in the Variants gallery on the
Design tab.
Creating Slide Backgrounds on Your Own
Besides a theme, your other option for creating slide backgrounds is to do
it on your own. For a background, you can have a solid color, a transparent
color, a gradient blend of colors, a picture, or a clip-art image.
Solid color: A single, uniform color. You can adjust a color’s
transparency and in effect “bleach out” the color to push it farther into the
Gradient: A mixture of different colors with the colors blending into one
Clip art: A clip-art image from the Microsoft Clip Organizer.
Picture: A photograph or graphic.
Texture: A uniform pattern that gives the impression that the slide is
displayed on a material such as cloth or stone.
How to create these kinds of slide backgrounds on your own is the subject of
the next several pages.
