Changing the Background Microsoft PowerPoint 2007

    Another way to change the appearance of your presentation is to modify the background of your slides. PowerPoint provides predefined background themes that you can choose. To choose a background theme, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Design tab.

    2. Click Background Styles under the Background group.

    A menu displays different backgrounds you can choose, as shown in Figure 11-4.

    PowerPoint applies your chosen background style to every slide in your presentation.

    Choosing a solid color background

    Rather than choose a theme, you might want to choose a solid color. If you choose a solid color background, you must make sure that any text or graph­ics that appear on your slides can still be seen. For example, if you choose a dark red background, any text or graphics on your slides should appear in light colors to make them visible against the dark red background.

    To make sure solid background colors don't obscure your text and graphics, you can also adjust its transparency to make the color appear darker or lighter.

    To change the background to a solid color, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Design tab.

    2. Click the Background Styles icon in the Background group.

    A pull-down menu appears (refer to Figure 11-4).

    3. Click Format Background near the bottom of the menu.

    The Format Background dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 11-5.

    6. Click a color.

    PowerPoint fills your slide background with your chosen color.

    7. (Optional) Drag the Transparency slider left (0%) or right (100%).

    The higher the transparency value, the lighter the background color appears.
