Changing Interface Color in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

When PowerPoint 2016 is launched, you see the Presentation Gallery. You will notice the bright orange section on the left side of the Presentation Gallery. Yes, you can change the bright orange to something else and end up with a different-looking PowerPoint program interface. We show you how to change the interface color in this tutorial.

Recolor Picture Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Adding a busy, multi-colored picture background to your slides is one of the worst things you can do to your PowerPoint presentation. People do so all the time, and in the process, they compromise the subtlety and contrast of any content on their slides. So why do they do so? As a picture, their chosen content may appear awesome. However, placing the same picture as a backdrop for text, charts,

Changing Color of Pictures in PowerPoint 2013

Working with pictures in PowerPoint 2013 can be so much fun and fulfilling at the same time. One of the coolest options is to recolor the hue of your entire picture so that it looks almost like a duotone picture. You have already learned how to apply corrections to your inserted pictures, and this Color option can help you do more with your pictures. Be aware though that this Color option does

Customize the Bullet Size and Color in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Although you can change bullet styles in PowerPoint, there may be times when you want to make changes to other characteristics of the bullet characters. You might want to alter the size of the bullet character so that it is somewhat smaller or larger than the text before which it is placed. Or maybe you just need to change the color of the bullet characters. Most of the time, the defaults work

Black Interface in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

By default, the PowerPoint 2016 Ribbon area is placed against an orange backdrop. This orange color shows up because the default Office Theme named Colorful is applied to the interface. So why is the Theme called Colorful when it is just a plain orange backdrop? That's because any Theme you apply to an interface of an Office 2016 program influences all other programs. For instance, Word 2016

Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Working with HSL Colors

Assuming someone has provided you with an HSL (Hue, Saturation, and Luminosity) value of a color, and asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide in PowerPoint 2010, then how do you proceed? Let's also explore another scenario. What if you have started with a color that's close enough to what you need, but it's not the exact one. Maybe you need it to be a little less saturated? Again,

Color: Hue in HSL

Colors can be darker or lighter – and this in color terms is called Luminosity. Color can also be saturated (vibrant) or desaturated (neutralized). Desaturation can be done to a lesser extent or more, and when it happens to the maximum extent possible, that’s the same as completely neutralizing the color altogether – think about converting a colored picture to grayscale and you will understand

Color: Saturation in HSL

Color is a fascinating subject – a subject that evokes enough creativity and pickles the minds of many. If we were to pause looking at color as a creative subject for just a brief amount of time, we would be able to explore it from a different perspective – the perspective of science! This color science will open new avenues for us to understand why colors behave in certain ways. For example,

Color: Luminosity in HSL

We explored the HSL color model broadly previously -- now we will look at Luminosity, one of its three properties. So what is Luminosity? Luminosity is the value that spans from pure black (darkest) to pure white (lightest). Now how does Luminosity influence any color? If we change the Luminosity values to 0 (zero) for a given colors, it does not matter what Hue or Saturation values they have

Color: HSL

We learned about the RGB Color model in a previous tutorial -- and while computers can easily understand the fact that you mix red and green to end up with yellow, that's some strange logic to us humans which we shall never comprehend! For most of us, we understand that mixing yellow and blue makes green. So how can we stay within the RGB color model, which computers understand -- and mix

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Applying Theme Colors and Theme Fonts

Applying a Theme in PowerPoint applies Theme Colors, Theme Fonts, Theme Effects, Theme Backdrops, and much more. However there are scenarios in which you really don't require such a complete makeover or metamorphosis. In that case, you can still apply Theme Colors and Theme Fonts and leave all other Theme attributes unchanged. Learn how to apply Theme Colors and Theme Fonts in PowerPoint

Color: CMYK

We have explored what color models are, and also looked at RGB, one of the most used color models. The second color model we are exploring is CMYK. Like RGB, where the alphabets stand for color names Red, Green, and Blue, CMYK also has one color name representing each alphabet – in this case, the colors are Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. Learn about how Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black

Learn PowerPoint 2011 for Mac: Working with RGB Colors

PowerPoint provides an option to fill any shape with a solid fill color easily. But what if you want a specific color to be filled? Maybe you need to use specific colors that are part of your company's corporate identity. In that case, you will need to get an RGB value of that color. So what is RGB? RGB stands for Red, Green, and Blue -- and each of these three colors possess a value within the

Learn PowerPoint 2010 for Windows: Working with RGB Colors

Let us assume that someone has provided you with an RGB value for a color, and has asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide. Then how do you proceed? Before proceeding, make sure you know what RGB colors are, and specifically what the three values: R, G, and B indicate. Once you have these R, G, and B values, you can easily access that color within PowerPoint. Learn about how to

Forget Color Theory (Guest Post)

You don't need a graphic design education. You don't need to "be designy" or "be artsy", you don't need to read 15 books on color theory. You can do it yourself, in minutes. But first we need to talk about why well designed presentations are important. Read more in this post by Devesh Khanal. Categories: color, guest_post, powerpoint, tutorials

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Working with RGB Colors

We already explored what Color Models are, and we then looked at the RGB color model that uses three primary colors: Red, Green, and Blue to mix and create almost 16 million colors. All RGB colors have values for all the three option: R, G, and B. Assuming someone has provided you with an RGB value, and asked you to add a rectangle of that color to a slide, then how do you proceed? Learn

Color Models: RGB

Color in electronic devices is made up from light, as already discussed in our Color Models article. The three primary colors of this electronic color model are red, blue, and green -- thus this model is called the RGB color model. RGB is essentially an abbreviation for Red Green Blue.

Color: Models

Color is something that we can all differentiate between. Most of us have little problem differentiating between red and blue, or even between red and pink. Color is also something that's been part of our lives, and part of our education system. Most of us learned about color before we learned the alphabet -- yet as the process of growing up occurred, many of us forgot what a joy color can be,

Color: Contrast

One of the most fascinating qualities of color is contrast. Contrast is the quality that distinguishes one color’s luminosity from another. If you place black next to white, you will end up with striking contrast. But yellow placed next to white will certainly not provide the same contrast. That's because the difference in luminosity between black and white is so much more than the luminosity

Learning Color

You need to understand color theory better to understand color. And color theory is not really difficult at all. In fact, color theory is just a little science combined with some art.

Can I Get a Better Green?

Theme colors are an integral part of a PowerPoint template. These colors appear in all of the Ribbon galleries and will influence the look of graphics and charts created with the template. But what about the tints and shades that populate the rest of the gallery? PowerPoint automatically generates these values based on the Theme colors. You cannot manually set any of the tints or shades.

Learn PowerPoint 2013 for Windows: Advanced Eyedropper Options

We have already explored the new Eyedropper tool in PowerPoint 2013 that lets you sample colors from any object within your PowerPoint slide and use that same color as a fill or outline for a shape.
