Transparency for Shape Outlines

Transparency for Shape Outlines in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Shape Outlines such as solid colors and gradients have a transparency attribute that lets you reduce the opacity of the outline so that the slide object or background behind shows through. Transparency is calculated in percentages and you can change its value all the way from 0 to 100%.


Artistic Effects for Picture Backgrounds

Artistic Effects for Picture Backgrounds in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

Default slide background options are limited to solid or gradient fills, and yes, you can even apply a picture as a slide background. However, picture backgrounds do pose some issues, especially since a busy picture may hamper the visibility of other slide objects such as text or charts. Fortunately, PowerPoint provides options to reduce the intensity of a picture background so that any foreground elements such as text can stand apart.


Change Default Shape Attributes

Change Default Shape Attributes in PowerPoint 2016 for Windows

When you insert a new shape on a slide in PowerPoint 2016 (or in any previous version), by default it is filled with a solid color and an outline (or something else depending on the Theme your presentation is based on). For example in a new blank presentation that we created, the shape is by default filled with a blue solid fill and has a thin dark blue outline. Whenever we insert another new shape on a slide, it will possess these same default shape attributes (fill, outline, and effect).

Shapes let you do so much in PowerPoint. Once you master the art of adding and working with shapes, you can do so much. For example, you can place circles of various sizes one on top of the other to create something that looks like a target. Similarly, you can create seemingly complicated arrangements of shapes quite easily to create something that illustrates a concept or idea so much better than mere bulleted text. To create any such graphic content, you need to start by inserting common shapes. PowerPoint Online, the browser-based version of PowerPoint makes it easy to do so.
