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:
- 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.
- 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.
