The background image of a powerpoint presentation (as well as any kind of presentation format) slides is often got abandoned by the creator of the presentation. In fact, with a little focus to this side will help you gain the opportunity to create same perception of the audience as you want to.
Always Contrast (Photo Background vs Fonts)
If you are deciding to use image as background, then make your font color contrast with the image. Why? Simple, to make it easier to read. For example, dark background combined with white font color will present the best combination. The same thing goes to bright background that you just need to combine with darker font color.
The second tips you can use is a totally clean background, just like white or gray without any image or pattern as background. Its function is to focus to the content that you put into. Do not forget, play the words that are in the slide so it looks simple and easy to read (do not fill the slide with full writing as well yes).
Bold Color Background
In order to create a strong positive impression, you can also utilize bold colors like dark red, navy blue or green as your background color. It differs from previous tips where we use white/gray to make some clean space. This one, you are suggested to leave it clean but combined it with strong kind of colors. And don't forget to combine your font color with contrast one so your audience can easily read what has been put over the slide.
