Inserting Modified Pictures in PowerPoint

In PowerPoint 2013, I select Design >> Format Background >> Picture Fill >> Insert Picture From File. Then I increase the picture transparency to 85% (to fade the picture out, so that black text will stand out against it).

If I want to re-use this same background slide, I can easily copy the slide, and then type new text--but is there an easy way to apply the background to an existing slide with existing text?

Or is the next best thing to duplicate the slide with the faded background, and then copy and paste the text in?

Thank you.

Try

Select slide with fill in left pane
Click Format Painter (HOME Tab)
Click slide to apply to in left pane

If you double click the format painter you can apply to several slides

You could also create a new layout (or change an existing one) by adding the background to a layout in slide master view. This would be the sest option if you are going to use the background a lot.
