Microsoft Office Tutorials and References
In Depth Information
PowerPoint comes supplied with a
gallery of themed designs, and more are
available from Microsoft Office Online.
Themes come with a preset font, coordinated color
palette, background, and placeholder arrangement,
and with a single click you can apply all these
attributes to every slide in your presentation. You
can change to a different theme at any time.
The theme you select sets the tone for your entire
presentation. If you are giving a presentation on an
arctic oil exploration you probably want a
presentation with cooler color tones, but if you are giving
a presentation on global warming, you want one
with warmer colors. For vibrant presentations, use
one with bright distinctive colors shades. Choosing
a theme is a very personal choice. Only you can
decide which one is right for your presentation.
Choosing a theme.
As you pause your mouse over any theme, Live
Preview shows you in the Slide pane what your
slides would look like with the new theme. Select
the theme you want, and all slides in your
presentation take on the new look. Figure 16-2 illustrates
the same slide with three different themes
beginning with the original Office theme that appears
when you launch PowerPoint.
To apply one of the predefined themes, choose
Design>Themes and click the More button. A
gallery of themes appears as seen in Figure 16-1.
