Although PowerPoint lets you choose almost any color you want, it is often difficult to choose the same color as a picture on the slide! You may want to match the colors of shapes or text on your slides to a picture, or even some other object (maybe a logo or even the slide background) of your PowerPoint presentation to give your slides a cohesive look. PowerPoint 2013's new Eyedropper option enables you to pick an exact color from anywhere, sometimes even from somewhere outside PowerPoint! Even better, when you are picking up the color from a source, you get to see the color preview as well as the RGB value of the color you are picking.
In PowerPoint, the Slide Master influences the layout and look of all slides in your presentation. One of the changes you can make to your Slide Master is applying the Background Style used so that all slide layouts and actual slides in your presentation use a different slide background.

Handmade Slides: Using Scanned Pictures
Using pictures in your slides does not mean that you are limited to using photographs from stock photo houses. You can certainly use your own camera -- either a digital camera or even the camera built within your phone to source your own pictures. You can also look at some unconventional sources, such as a scanner. A scanner? Yes, that's a device that several of us have not used for many years now -- but if you have one of these devices attached to your computer, do consider it as a source of visual content.
