Creating Slide Backgrounds in Photoshop for PowerPoint

If PowerPoint represents something more than anything else, it is the slide—and while you can use a white slide bereft of any graphic treatment, more often than not you will want to use something else. That’s because the background elements of a slide are a representation of the brand of your company, or even an expression of your personality.

In PowerPoint parlance, the background is just one choice that you must make to create that complete appearance. You will also need to explore fonts, colors, effects, slide layouts, and more. And all of these elements must work together to create and represent a cohesive brand. Here, we only explore backgrounds, and more importantly how you would create them within Adobe Photoshop.
