PowerPoint Tips and Tricks
• Proven solutions
PowerPoint is one of the most commonly used applications for presentations. The app has many tools and options to help you create amazing slides. One of those options is using background images and graphics. Why settle for the normal and simple slide design, when you can make it unique? Now, we will talk about how to edit background graphics in PowerPoint.
Using this guide you can easily add an image to the slide master. It can appear on every slide in the presentation, or in certain slides. You can also add a watermark, which might be a company logo that you want to include on every slide. To apply an image to all slides, you can follow this guide:
• Apply an Image to All Sides
Open the PowerPoint presentation, and click on “View” >“Slide Master”. Then, you can select the Slide Master at the top of the thumbnail panel on the left.
A ribbon will appear, and you need to click on “Background Styles”, and select the “Format Background” option.
Under the “Format Background” panel, click on “Picture or Texture Fill” if you want to insert pictures or graphics from your computer. Then locate the picture, and then click “Insert”. The image will fill the background of the slide master and all the layout masters below it.
To create a watermark effect, go to the “Format Background” panel, and slide the “Transparency” bar to the right to change the opacity percentage.
• Apply an Image to Certain Sides
The guide for adding pictures to certain slides is a bit different from the way of applying images to all slides. With that in mind, here is how to apply an image and edit PowerPoint template background graphics.
While PowerPoint offers you a variety of options for your presentations, this software can be limited. For example, sharing PowerPoint with people who do not have Microsoft Office is tricky. That is why nowadays, most presentations are in PDF format. You can create the presentation in PowerPoint, and then export it to PDF. And to manage PDF files, you need a powerful PDF tool. We recommend using Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor, a one-stop PDF solution, making the PDF experience simple, easy, and seamless. Specifically, you can create, edit, convert and manage PDF documents in a matter of seconds. Here are some of the main features of PDFelement.
As we said before, PDFelement can be used to edit the background in your PDF file. This feature works for PDF files or other file formats that are converted into a PDF File. Here is how you can add new background.
Launch PDFelement and open the PDF file, and then go to “Edit” > “Background” > “Add background”.
There are many edits you can make to the background. For starters, you can choose one color as the background. Or you can add an image or PDF file from your computer.
Edit the appearance of the background by editing the rotation degree and opacity. What's more, you can select the "Page Range" you want the background to appear. You can select all the pages in the PDF or just a single page. Or specify exactly which pages you want the background to appear. Once you are done with the edits, click on "Apply".
Note: If at any point you want to change something or remove the background, go to “Edit” > “Background” > “Edit background” to change it.
