PowerPoint does not have a tool for creating watermarks, but using some built-in functionality, you can manually create a watermark. This video shows how to add a text box to a master slide, to create a watermark.
- [Narrator] PowerPoint does not have…a built-in watermark feature,…but you can make a watermark manually…with a few easy steps.…In the view ribbon click on slide master.…The master defines the style and layout…for slides in the template.…Scroll to the top of the list…and choose the master for your template.…Now make a text box by going into the insert ribbon,…choose the text box option, and click on the slide.…Type in some text.…
Then select that text,…and in the home ribbon you can set the size.…Then go to the text color menu…and choose a light gray or some other color…that will be barely visible on the slide.…Then you can move that text box…and rotate it to get it into position.…Then go to the slide master ribbon…and close the master view.…Now you will see the watermark…on all of the slides built from that template.…
The watermark will even appear when you print.…
