Add Gradient Fills to Shapes

Add Gradient Fills to Shapes in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Gradient fills are typically blended fills between two or more colors that graduate from one color to another. Although shapes filled with gradients look so incredible, make sure you choose the colors that form the gradient very carefully. PowePoint's basic gradients are all very useable since they just blend a Theme color with white or black, making the resultant gradient lighter or darker.


More Gradients

More Gradients in PowerPoint 2016 for Mac

Add a gradient fill to your shape, and you may run into limitations! PowerPoint's default gradient options choose all the gradient colors for you, and all available gradients seem to be based on the same color family. While this sort of restraint does keep your slides looking consistent and aesthetic, they also prevent you from playing more with gradients. To explore more, you must choose the More Gradients option. This option leads you to a detailed gradient editor that's capable of making changes to the gradient type, direction, angle, color, etc. In this tutorial, we explain these extra gradient options available within PowerPoint 2016 for Mac.
