Suppose you are going to make a circuit of PowerPoint presentations publicly on one object, or introduce a series of your products that has different color, here is the dilemma – use one PowerPoint theme for all would be boring and create a specific PowerPoint theme for each presentation will take too much time. Is there a compromise way? Yes, to create a texture PowerPoint theme that you can change the color as you wants.
Step 1: Open PowerPoint program and create a blank PowerPoint slide. Click “View” tab and then “Slide Master” to set the PowerPoint template.
Step 2: In the Slide Master view window, select the main slide first – the 1st slide. Every change you made on the main slide will be applied to other slides automatically. Now right click on the background and choose “Format Background“.
Step 3: In the “Fill” tab, choose “Picture or texture fill” option, then you can choose one from the 24 default texture backgrounds or insert your own picture background. Check “Tile picture as texture” option if you want to insert your own picture.
Then click “Close” and “Close Master View” to apply the texture background. Click “Design” tab and find “Colors” button, choose different theme colors, does it work? No, it doesn’t, because we need to go on.
Step 4: Click “Insert” > “Shapes” and choose “Rectangle” shape. Drag your mouse to draw a rectangle that covers the PowerPoint background.
Step 5: Right click on the rectangle and Click “Send to Back” and click “Format Shape”.
Step 6: In the Format Shape interface, under “Fill” tab, set the “Transparency” as 50%, the value is changeable according to your needs. And then set the “Line Color” as “No line“.
Step 7: Now click “Design” tab and “Colors” button again, choose different theme colors, then you can see the PowerPoint background is changing.
Step 8: If you are not satisfied with the built-in theme colors, click “Create New Theme Colors“, then in the pop up window, click “Accent 1” to change the background color. If the theme color is okay, save it as a new theme color for future use.
After change a different theme color, you may need to adjust the text font color to make sure the texts look clear with that color of PowerPoint theme.
