"Applying a PowerPoint 2007 Theme To The Presentation"


PowerPoint 2007 Theme is a way of applying different designs to the presentation. A theme (or design themes) includes a slide background graphic, color and font choices, and graphic effect settings.

Some themes are built into PowerPoint so that they are always available; other themes are available only when you use certain templates, or when you specifically apply them from an external file.


To apply a theme from the Gallery

  • Select the slide(s) that you wish to apply the theme.
  • On the Design tab, in the Themes group, if the theme you want appears, click it, and skip the rest of these steps.
  • If the theme you want does not appear, you will need to open the gallery by clicking on the More button (left to the Effects icon) in the Themes group.
  • PowerPoint 2007 themes
