Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 Step by Step

Change slide backgrounds

If you want something fancier than a solid color or a color gradient, you can give the slide background a texture or pattern. PowerPoint comes with several built-in textures that you can easily apply to the background of slides.


Choose a background that doesn’t overpower your presentation

If none of these meets your needs, you might want to use a picture of a textured sur- face. For a dramatic effect, you can even incorporate a picture of your own, although these are best reserved for small areas of the slide rather than the entire background.
