Adding a Watermark Image to a PowerPoint presentation

Adding a Watermark Image to a PowerPoint presentation

How do I add an image so that it always appears in the same place on each screen.

And how do I customize for rare exceptions, when the watermark would cover important information?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To add the watermark, put it on your master slide.  Go to View--> Slide Master. There you will see the master slides that define various layouts in your presentation. These make up the look and feel of your presentation. You might think about the first one as a "Master Master" - Items you drop on that master will show on all the other masters.

Items on the masters go on the very bottom level of your design. When you are editing your slides themselves, anything you put on the slide will go on top of the master slide items.

That should get you going. If you need more details on slide master, LMK - I can get you some links with more assistance.

(PS: You might want to bookmark the PPT FAQ. Steve Rindsberg keeps it up. If you do presentations, you need that site.)
