If you use PowerPoint on a regular basis, you will no doubt have been occasionally frustrated that the backgrounds available do not always match your products or presentation topic.
Luckily for us, many have seen this gap in the market and are more than willing to give us what we want to help you deliver a better PowerPoint presentation.
Below is a list of websites that can get you started on for new backgrounds for PowerPoint.
- Microsoft I would say that the best place to start looking for new backgrounds is the place who manufactured your PowerPoint programme. Microsoft has a lot of backgrounds available for download and their categories include Abstract, Business, Hobby and Government. You are sure to find what you are looking for on this site.
- Graphic River If you are looking for professionally designed backgrounds, this is definitely a site you should visit and play around on. With over 18 000 backgrounds available, new being added on a regular basis, it will keep you busy for quite a while. This site does charge for their PowerPoint background images, but the lowest start at $2, so it will not break the bank.
- Brainy Betty A place where you can download PowerPoint backgrounds to heart’s content for absolutely nothing, Brainy Betty is definitely a site worth checking out. There are so many categories that it will leave your head spinning. Play around on the site and see what you find. It is a free download site, so it is a great resource for students as well.
- Charteo Another great resource for PowerPoint backgrounds as well as icons and images. Here you will find hundreds of images and backgrounds to choose from, all very professional. It is a high quality service and unfortunately you will be charged for images. If this is for your company, see it as an investment rather than a spend. It is something you can reuse, so it is worth it.
- Idezine Here you can find all sorts of resources relating to PowerPoint as well as other programmes. You will be able to download free PowerPoint backgrounds, so feel free to visit the site and play around on it a little. There are over 200 and the site is updated on a regular basis.
The sites mentioned above are not the only sites that offer PowerPoint backgrounds. There are so many sites out there that they are impossible to count and accurately document. Play around with your search engine and explore sites.
Remember to always be careful with downloads and only download from a site you can trust. Make sure your antivirus is in place just in case and approach everything on the internet with caution.
