You created slides for your presentation, and now you’re thinking about slide design: the background design, font styles, colors, and layouts. You want the slides to have a bit more visual pop. How do you get that? With themes. Themes provide a complete slide design for your presentation.

Inside this course:

Apply and change a theme (5:15)
Themes provide a complete slide design for your presentation, including background designs, font styles, colors, and layouts. To find themes, click Design, point to a theme, and see how it previews on the slide.

Change the theme background (5:37)
One way to personalize a theme is to change its background. Watch this video to learn how to find variant choices for a theme background, choose one that goes with the theme colors, and tweak it in the Formatting pane.

Customize colors and save the theme (4:50)
How do you change only one color of the current color scheme, rather than the entire color scheme, and change things like the color of your hyperlinked text? Watch this video to find out.
