- Create or open a presentation.
- From the Edit menu, click Settings.
- To change the presentation background color, click Select and complete the Choose a Color dialog box. Using this dialog box, you can specify a background color using either a color palette, an HSB definition, or an RGB definition. (Browser-safe colors have RGB values of 0, 51, 102, 153, 204, or 255.)
If you also specify a background image, the background color will be hidden by the background image unless the background image has transparent areas.
- To change the presentation background image, click an image from the Background Image list.
If the desired image does not appear in this list, click Add, type the location of the GIF or JPEG file in the Image File box (or click Browse to browse for the file), and then click OK. The image is published to Management & Control Services (MCS), and the file name appears in the Background Image list.
||Since the path to the file is not retained when the file is published to MCS, each file name must be unique.
If you select an image, it appears tiled in the background of the presentation. If the image contains transparent areas, the presentation's background color appears behind the image.
To use no image, click None from the Background Image list.
- Click OK.
||When you click OK, the Design View displays the selected background color, but it does not display any background image.
