Add A Watermark In PowerPoint 2007

One way you can spice up a presentation is to add a watermark. Watermarks are also a good way of branding presentations. A watermark is simply a very faint image that appears in the background. For example, it may be a company logo or name. You may have seen documents before that have the word confidential behind the text. Yes, this is a watermark!

PowerPoint 2007 makes it simple for you to add a watermark to a presentation.

To add a picture watermark in PowerPoint 2007:

  1. Within your presentation, click the slide that you want to add a watermark to. To add a watermark to all of the slides in a blank presentation, on the View tab, in the Presentations Views group, click Slide Master.
  2. On the Insert tab, within the Illustrations group, do one of the following.
    • To use a picture as a watermark, click Picture, locate the picture that you want, and then click Insert.
    • To use clip art as a watermark, click Clip Art. In the Clip Art task pane, in the Search for box, either type a word or phrase that describes the clip that you want, or type all or part of the file name of the clip, and then click Go.
  3. To send the watermark to the back of the slide, under Picture Tools, on the Format tab, in the Arrange group, click Send to Back
