In this video, staff author Jess Stratton shows users how to add and remove background images on slides, including working with the slide masters.
- [Instructor] My name is Jess Stratton,…and welcome to PowerPoint Tips Weekly.…This week, I'm going to show you…how to work with background images.…Background images can be frustrating,…as sometimes you've inherited a presentation,…and there's an image that you…just can't seem to get to to remove it.…Most likely, it's there as a background image.…I'm going to show you how to add one and remove one.…Let's start by putting a nice background image…on this title slide,…which right now looks a little bit plain.…To do that, select your slide,…and then change to the design ribbon tab.…
All the way on the right hand side,…click format, background.…It defaults to a solid fill.…Right now the color is set to white.…I'm going to change this to a picture or texture fill.…It's going to fill in with a standard texture,…but I'm going to choose to insert…a picture from a file.…I'll click file, and now I can browse my computer…to choose something on my computer.…I'll choose this nice picture of coffee,…and then I'll click the insert button right at the bottom.…
