Add a logo to your slides

Adding a graphic as a watermark behind the text of your slides is a great way to display a logo or other meaningful image. PowerPoint lets you adjust the picture's transparency after you put it on the slide.

  1. To add a logo to all the slides, Select View > Slide Master. Scroll to the top of the thumbnail pane on the left, and select the first item, the slide master.

  2. Select Insert > Shapes, pick a shape and then click and drag to draw the text box on the slide master. It should be about the same size as your logo. Note: If your logo is circular, use a circle shape.

  3. Right-click on the shape > Format Shape to open the menu.

  4. Under the bucket icon, select Fill > Picture fill > File and insert your logo image. Adjust darkness of the logo with the Transparency slider.

  5. To remove the border around the image, select the logo. Then right-click > Outline > No Outline.

  6. Exit Slide Master. All slides except title pages will have the logo.
