After choosing one of the design templates on PowerPoint, how do you change

just one side to not have that design template on it and create your own

design on it.

    • Details depend on what version you are using. If you are using 2003, you

      have a few choices. The easiest is to go to that slide and choose

      Background from the Format menu. Then check the box for Omit Background

      Graphics from Master. Click Apply (not Apply to All). Then you can add

      whatever graphics you want just to that slide. Alternatives include using

      the multiple masters feature to make a totally new master for that slide,

      but it is probably not worth it if you just have one slide.

    • A tiny addition to David's good suggestion

      If the slide design has a background image fill then "omit master background

      graphics" won't remove it. Choose your own background color in the drop down

      in this instance.

      Thanks, Dave - I had the opposite problem, and by checking 'Apply to all' I

      removed the unwanted design.

      Next - I want to put my own pictures as the background to the slide.

      Different picture for every slide. How can I get the text to superimpose on

      the p[icture?

      If I understand what you want to do correctly, you want each slide to

      have a different background picture. The easiest thing to do is in that

      same Format > Background menu. At the bottom of the dialogue box, click

      on the pull down menu (right above the check box for Omit background

      graphics from master). Choose Fill Effects. Click on the picture tab and

      select Select Picture. Alternatively, you could add a picture the normal

      way, select it, and choose Draw > Order > Send to Back.
