Want to add some punch to your presentation? Make your slides grab the audience's attention by adding a background to them. Within each design theme (theme: A set of unified design elements that provides a look for your document by using color, fonts, and graphics.) in PowerPoint 2007 is an array of coordinated choices for background colors and textures. You can even use a picture as a background and adjust it so it doesn't conflict with your text. As you work, you can see your choices displayed instantly in a live preview, so no guesswork involved! You don't have to be a professional designer to create a professional-looking slide show — watch the demo and see how.
