Creating a new ppt document and giving slides a background and a set of colours. *
• Apply a theme This is a quick way to give a specific look to an entire ppt document. A theme is a combination of colours and fonts, which may be applied to a file as a single selection. The default theme is Office Theme, with a white background and dark, subtle colours.
Choose a theme (Ribbon > Design) To see how a theme will look: 1) Rest the pointer over a theme thumbnail ... 2) ... and the preview appears on the slide. 3) Click the More arrow for a full theme gallery .
Tailor the theme 1) Use the Coloursand Fonts galleries on the Design tab. 2) Look at other Background Styles. Choose theme colours. 3) Point to a thumbnail to preview the alternative background. *
