You can further customize your theme by applying, removing, and modifying its background. In addition to specific color backgrounds, you can also add special background effects such as shading, patterns, textures, and pictures to your presentation.

Applying a Background Style

Applying a new background style is an easy way to change the appearance of your presentation.

Applying a New Background Style

To apply a background style to your presentation, follow these steps:

1.
On the Design tab, click the Background Styles button. A gallery displays with 12 possible background styles designed to work with your presentation theme (see Figure 1).



Figure 1. For added effect, apply a background to jazz up your presentation.


2.
Pause over each style to preview it on your open slide.

3.
Click your preferred style to apply it automatically to your presentation.

Customizing a Background

If none of the background styles suits your needs, you can customize a background style. To do so, select Format Background in the gallery to open the Format Background dialog box, as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2. Advanced options enable you to further customize your background.


The Format Background dialog box is nearly identical to the Format Shape dialog box. Select your background preferences in this dialog box, and click the Apply to All button. The new background displays on your presentation slides, overriding the theme’s background.

Omitting Background Graphics

If you want to omit the background graphics included with the template you applied to your presentation, click the Hide Background Graphics check box on the Design tab. For example, clicking this check box on a presentation whose theme or template includes pictures or shapes removes these objects but retains the original colors.

Resetting a Background

If you customize your background and decide you prefer the original, you can easily reset it. To reset the background to the theme default, click the Background Styles button on the Design tab and select Reset Slide Background.
