How to Customize Colors in PowerPoint

????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????In order to come up with better presentations, it is important to make sure that the colors you choose for your layout are not messy and you work on this on the slide master of your PowerPoint.

It is actually very easy to fix the colors and it can save you more time when you do the rest of your presentation. However, typically, default colors are used on the slide masters which are more often than not, not the colors the presentation is actually using so what you do is you change the colors manually and that takes up so much time.

So here is what you do:

In PowerPoint 2007 and 2010, click the Design tab and choose Colors. In PowerPoint 2013, click the View tab, then click Slide Master and then choose Colors.

At the bottom of the list, choose Customize Colors. If you aren’t particular about your colors — you don’t have exact specifications, you can choose one of the options on the list that is similar to what you want and then choose Customize Colors.

You just do these two steps first:

  1. Choose View tab, Slide Master.
  2. In the left-hand pane, scroll up to the first, larger thumbnail.

There’s a wrong way of doing this and a better way of applying a Slide Master to a presentation. It is basically about creating a theme file so you can then easily apply your design and not fret about copying over your original presentation.
